Pro-LP journalist: VP Robredo 'advised to prepare for the transition'

Pro-Liberal Party journalist Philip Lustre Jr. reportedly said that Vice President Leni Robredo "has been advised to prepare for the transition."

A screenshot posted by political analyst Sass Rogando Sasot shows the conversation between Lustre and a certain Arthur Jimenez:

Jimenez: "Stock market went down then BIR collection in July also went down. I would also like to ask the same question, Philip, WHAT'S NEXT?"

Lustre: "i was told that leni has been advised to prepare for the transition. i don't know the details though...neither do i have any confirmation..."

Sasot challenged the Vice President to speak up about the issue and refute the freelance writer's claim.

"So does Philip Lustre Jr have any idea about the plan to overthrow Duterte? Leni Robredo is this true? If no, categorically deny and call out Lustre, your ally, for spreading chismis," she posted.

Meanwhile, political blogger and socia media personality Thinking Pinoy posted a photo of Lustre sitting next to former interior secretary Mar Roxas, LP's presidential bet who lost to President Rodrigo Duterte in the 2016 election.

TP said Lustre "was the same guy who spread Duterte cancer rumors in October 2015."

What Lustre said, according to TP, "can only mean Duterte's ouster."
