Lacson said he knows what destabilization looks like since he was part of it during the time of former President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo.

Naging part ako ng destabilization during the past administration, not under President Aquino, before that. And I know a destabilization activity when I see one. So yan naging basehan kung bakit parang this looks or this sounds familiar,” Lacson said.

Ano ba aim, bakit pursigidong ipalabas o ma-prolong, ma-extend ang hearing? Isa lang naman eh, to bring down the administration,” he added.

To me, it’s not bad, it’s normal when you feel an administration is failing the Filipino people, I think it’s incumbent upon us being public officials ourselves and even a common Filipino, ordinary Filipino, na gumawa rin ng hakbang para di mapabagsak sa illegal na pamamaraan. Kasi meron naman constitutional na pamamaraan para maialis mo ang isang Pangulo na sa tingin mo hindi sumasang-ayon sa Constitution,” Lacson further said.

It was Trillanes who handled LascaƱas’ and initiated the probe in the Senate committee.

According to Inquirer, Lacson thinks Trillanes was behind a destabilization plot against the current administration.

Well admittedly siya naman yung handler e. And of course sa kanya nag-report. And the other handlers whom di naman natin kilala lahat kung sino nagha- handle,” Lacson said.

But the mere act alone of going from one media outlet to another, and as I was observing pagka may hearing, napakaraming international media na nagko-cover, which is quite unusual. Marami rin tayong hearings na ginagawa rito wala tayong nakikitang masyadong international media,” he added.

Lacson also commented on Trillanes' statement that exposing the truth does not mean destabilization.

Pero ano ang goal? Just the truth? Come on. We were not born yesterday. All of a sudden goal mo lang is just to expose the truth? For what reason, for what purpose? And what is the objective?
