And after Dilma goes?

Brazilian President Dilma Rousseff isn’t accused of participating in the Lava Jato scandal.   There is zero evidence linking her to this.  Instead, she is accused of allowing  a  misleading presentation of the budget deficit by including funds from state-owned banks. Whether this was illegal will be hotly contested during the impeachment proceedings.  She claims other presidents have presented the budget in this manner. Opponents  claim this helped her win the election.

Brazilian Vice President Michel Temer and  Leader of the Lower House Eduardo Cunha might have something in common-  a desire to  quickly  end  the Lava Jato scandal to save themselves and/or their friends:

Dilma Rousseff’s Impeachment isn’t a coup, it is a cover-up

The conclusion of Brazilian journalist, Celso Rocha de Barros, is that after Dilma, there are a variety of tactics to “declaw”  the investigation.

So, Dilma becomes a scapegoat for all that’s wrong in Brazil, and the music plays on.

Stay tuned,

Dave
