Senator Antonio Trillanes IV believed that the justice committee of the House of Representatives failed to prove the involvement of Senator Leila De Lima to illegal transaction in New Bilibid Prison (NBP).
"Bottom line, wala silang na-prove. Hindi nila nakumbinse ang taong bayan. Nagkabuhol-buhol na yung script nila. These things will not stand in court. Bottom line dito hindi totoo, makikita 'yan ng taong bayan," Trillanes said in a report of GMA News.He also added that the lawmakers made fool of themselves as they focused on questioning the personal life of the then Justice secretary particularly her relationship with her former driver and security aide, Ronnie Dayan.

Aside from it, he pointed out the difference of the testimonies of Kerwin Espinosa and Dayan.
"Kaya sila magkaiba kasi hindi totoo. I really doubt na nangyari yung mga kine-claim nila. Even body language, yung assessment ng testimony, hindi totoo talaga kaya mahirap magtahi ng storya na hindi totoo," Trillanes said.
"Hindi maganda yung kinalabasan nun, except for the congressmen themselves. Siguro sila lang natuwa. Walang natuwa sa hearings na yun. Base ito sa reaction generally ng publiko na whether [President Rodrigo] Duterte supporter ka or hindi, hindi tama yun," he added.
