In an article published by Philippine Daily Inquirer (PDI), Alejano said President Duterte’s allies in the House of Representatives used as a “bargaining chip” the impeachment threat against the Vice President to convince their colleagues not to support the impeachment complaint that he had filed against the Chief Executive.

Ang nakikita ko dito, ginamit nilang bargaining chips itong possible impeachment complaint against the Vice President and even the Ombudsman para ‘yung mga supporters and allies of the Vice President ay hindi po magsusuporta sa impeachment complaint against the President. Parang nagkaroon ng, huwag kayong magsusupport diyan, hindi rin kami magfa-file ng impeachment complaint. Parang nagkaroon na ng palit-ulo ba.

Atty. Rivera answered Alejano's allegations through his Facebook account. He said:

ANO ULIT??

Ang kapal talaga ng apog nitong kumag na ito. Panuorin mo ang replay ng committee deliberations mo at kung gaano katanga ang mga sagot mo. Sana nagpasama ka kay Sandok para kahit papano may masagot siya na legal argument. Kasi kung ako ang kasama mo dun, simple lang sasabihin ko. The impeachment process is a political process and not a judicial proceeding. Strict adherence to the rules on evidence may not be espoused in the interest of substantial justice. Para at least, may lusot ang kamangmangan na ginawa ninyo.

Pero, por Diyos por Santo por favor por bida...hwag mong idamay ang impeachment ni Leni bilang bargaining chip para hwag isulong ang PRD impeachment. Bakit kamo??
Una, bakit kami maghihirap gumawa ng complaint kung ipambabargain lang naman pala. May naunang Lozano complaint. Eh di yun na lang sana.

Pangalawa, sinuway namin ang utos ng Pangulo na hwag na magfile ng impeachment kay Lugaw. Desisyon namin yun.

Pangatlo, sa palagay mo ba magpapagamit kami at hayaan namin na magmukhang tanga kaming gawing kasangkapan ng mga kongresista.

Pang-apat, nakita niyo ba ang ginawa ninyong complaint?

Bilang spokesperson ng Impeach Leni Movement, ito lang ang sasabihin namin:

Maghintay muna tayo at hwag isipin na patay na ang impeachment na naifile namin. Kasi hindi pa tapos ang laban. Alam ng mga kongresista na galit ang taumbayan sa ating Bise.

At pwede naming ipaalala sa kanilang mga botante kung ano ang ginawa nila sa impeachment ni Leni. Karamihan sa members ng aming grupo ay nakapagpanalo na ng President dahil lamang sa ingay na ginawa namin.

Kaya din po namin magpatalo ng isang kandidato. Itaga niyo yan sa singit niyong yellow.
Meanwhile, Alejano's impeachment complaints against the Chief Executive were dismissed on Monday due to lack of substance. House Committee members said Alejano did not have “personal knowledge” of the accusations against Duterte.

Alejano has accused President Duterte of high crimes, including alleged hidden wealth, ordering police to kill criminals, and mishandling of the South China Sea case.
