Corruption is just the pretext for a wealthy elite who failed to defeat Brazil’s president at the ballot box
Brazil’s president is the only one NOT charged with a crime yet the ones impeaching her are all charged with very serious crimes! It’s a coup to take over the country undemocratically and put in charge corrupt officials. They couldn’t win at the ballot box, but by teaming together, they are trying another way to take over.
A New York Times article last week reported that “60% of the 594 members of Brazil’s Congress” – the ones voting to impeach Rousseff – “face serious charges like bribery, electoral fraud, illegal deforestation, kidnapping and homicide”. By contrast, said the article, Rousseff “is something of a rarity among Brazil’s major political figures: she has not been accused of stealing for herself”.
