Popular blogger Thinking Pinoy basically said on Facebook that outgoing Senator Antonio Trillanes IV is in for a serious legal trouble after admitting he met Bikoy in 2018.
Thinking Pinoy believed that by claiming the allegations made by Bikoy failed his vetting process, the outgoing senator unknowingly dismissed Bikoy’s allegation versus members of the presidential family likely an outright false.
Despite knowing that this was same allegations Advincula peddled to him, Trillanes praised Bikoy’s videos when it came out on April 2019, describing as “very serious, quite pointed, and well-explained”.
Thinking Pinoy clarified that it’s possible that the story peddled by Advincula to Trillanes is different from the one in the Bikoy videos.
Thinking Pinoy reasoned this is unlikely, considering that Advincula sold the same exact story to Senator Sotto in 2016 although starring different characters and personalities (Pnoy, Roxas et. al) instead of the members of presidential family in the 2019 version.
On that note, Thinking Pinoy sees two possibilities.
1. Trillanes made up the “vetting process” story and gave his blessing to the creation of the Bikoy videos.
2. Trillanes may not have a hand of the creation of the videos but lent credence to the video despite his knowledge the claims failed his supposed “vetting process”.
Thinking Pinoy believed Trillanes knew the claims are likely false, yet he still supported libelous allegation, but also against a 14-year-old child.
Whichever the case, Thinking Pinoy believed that outgoing Senator Antonio Trillanes IV is in for a serious legal trouble, as both possibilities qualify as violations of anti-sedition laws, among others.

TRILLANES IS IN SERIOUS LEGAL TROUBLE, AGAIN
Coup plotter Senator Antonio “Sonny” Trillanes IV admitted today that he had prior knowledge of Advincula’s exposé when he met him in 2018. He said the allegations failed his “vetting process”, clearly implying the allegations are likely if not outright false .
When the videos came out in April 2019, he described them as “very serious, quite pointed, and well-explained ”… despite his knowledge that this was the exact same story that Advincula was peddling to him, the same story that failed his “vetting process”.
Of course, there’s a possibility that the story Advincula told Trillanes last year is different from the one in the Bikoy Videos.
But that is highly unlikely, considering that Advincula peddled the same exact story to Senator Vicente Tito Sotto in 2016 , albeit with different players (Noynoy Aquino and friends were the drug dealers in the 2016 version instead of Rody Duterte & Co.) and the 2016 plot is not materially different from the plot of the 2019 Bikoy Videos.
With that said, Thinking Pinoy sees only two possibilities:
1. That Trillanes’ simply made up the existence of this “vetting process” and proceeded with supporting Advincula in his creation of the videos.
This first possibility is pretty much what Advincula said when he surrendered to the police and flipped his story .
2. That Trillanes may not have had a hand in creating the videos, but he lent it credence despite his knowledge that the claims failed his supposed “vetting process”.
He knew the claims are likely false, yet he still attempted to reinforce the scurrilous libel not only against the state, but also against a 14-year-old child.
Whichever the case, Trillanes is in serious legal trouble, as both possibilities likely qualify as violations of anti-sedition laws, among others.
