Nobel Laureate Maria Ressa Receives A Subpoena From U.S. Congress!

MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – A Congressional Blue Ribbon Committee has issued a subpoena to Maria Ressa to testify in its continuing investigation into the January 2021 attack on the U.S. Capitol.

The subpoena was issued after the Nobel Laureate, CEO of Rappler and convicted criminal warned of a repeat of the attack on the U.S. Capitol if what she describes as disinformation is not stopped in the light of the coming Philippine elections.

In its summons, the committee said to Ressa: ”It appears you have some classified information that we are not aware of that will put our American lawmakers at harms way. It is important that we put a stop to this sinister plan to launch a second attack on the Capitol.”

The U.S. Congress has sent a diplomatic note to the Philippine government and the Court of Appeals to allow Ressa to travel to Washington, D.,C. to face the lawmakers.

This is a developing story.

Maria Ressa Makes A Fashion Statement In Oslo!

OSLO, Norway (The Adobo Chronicles, Berlin Bureau) – Maria Ressa would do anything just to make her case to the international community about her controversial Nobel Peace Prize.

Ressa was in Oslo to personally receive her award after being given the go signal to travel out of the Philippines by a Philippine Appeals Court, the same judicial branch of government she claimed was being used to weaponize the curtailment of her freedom of speech and of the press.

Aside from her usual rhetoric about being a journalist silenced by the government, the CEO of the online news source Rappler also made a shocking fashion statement.

Instead of her signature pantsuit, Ressa wore what looked like a black and white tunic which when zipped up, seemed to poke fun at her own accusation of receiving hundreds if not thousands of rape threats because of her fearless brand of ”journalism.” Her face mask also featured a zipper that many believed symbolized her being silenced, or on the other side of coin, her countrymen’s desire for her to shut up.

Her Oslo appearance coincided with the national costume competition of the 70th Miss Universe Pageant being held in Israel. Pageant enthusiasts swore if Miss Universe Philippines wore the same outfit as Ressa’s, she would be a runaway winner of the pageant’s Best National Costume award.

The Adobo Chronicles tried, but failed, to identify Ressa’s wardrobe designer.
