Now some who were involved in the incident refuse to respond to questions by the House impeachment panel, invoking their Fifth Amendment Rights. The police officers refusing to answer questions are the governor's body guard, Captain Jermain Nekaifes, DPS officer Stanley Patris and DPS officer Myron Laniyo.
DPS acting Commissioner Aniceto T. Ogumoro, Commonwealth Ports Authority Police Chief Jordan Kosam and CPA harbor security chief Capt. Juan Rebuenog testified before the impeachment panel.
DPS Acting commissioner Aniceto Ogumoro claimed that he did not know about the police escort of Buckingham by high level officers including his brother.
Rebuenog told the panel that it was not uncommon for police officers to escort people to the airport and carry their luggage. Really? They cannot solve crimes or even respond to calls, but they can carry luggage?
If you listen to OPA Attorney Hasselback on KSPN news it is clear that police officers refused to cooperate in serving the penal summons to the former Attorney General. Law enforcement officials are required to serve a summons. So who will investigate and fire those who refused to do their jobs?
Testimony given by these officers conflicted with previous testimony. The cell phone records of these officers, the former AG and the governor should be subpoenaed. Let's see who communicated with whom and when.
Meanwhile Superior Court Judge David Wiseman rejected former Attorney General Edward Buckingham's motion to reconsider declaring him a fugitive from the law.
