"Kino-confirm niyo po nakausap niyo na po siya, nagkaron na po kayo ng meeting bago pa ung kahapon Mr. Senator?" Antenor asked Trillanes.
"Opo, nakipag-usap si Senator De Lima kung paano ise-secure at pano dadalin sa senado. So, ginawan po naming ng paraan ‘yun para makarating siya," the senator said.
"Mula sa Pangasinan? o yun lang?" Antenor asked.
