The senator, on Thursday, mentioned that the President must read the transcript of the senate hearing on the said corruption.

"Gusto niya ipadala namin sa kaniya buong transcript of what transpired and concentrate on the responses of Morales and the other resource persons, 'yung members ng execom ng PhilHealth, and it is up for him to judge," said Lacson during the interview with ANC.

"Sabi niya noong araw just a whiff of corruption pag nakaamoy ka lang, you’re fired. This is not just a whiff of corruption. Very disappointing," added Lacson.
