Dilma Rousseff’s Impeachment Isn’t a Coup, It’s a Cover-Up

Dilma Rousseff’s Impeachment Isn’t a Coup, It’s a Cover-Up | The Dark Side of Brazil | Scoop.it
Brazil’s president may have broken the law, but corrupt lawmakers are trying to bring her down to distract from their own problems.
Le.Masc @SuperSonicSP's insight:
The crisis brought on by the Operation Car Wash scandals should have been part of Brazil’s painful — and extraordinary — process of establishing a functioning judiciary and fighting corruption. But Ms. Rousseff’s fall is not the logical conclusion of that happy story. Far from being the dawn of a new era, it may very well turn out to be the way the old political class reasserts control over the country — and escapes jail.

The wine waiter in a smart restaurant in São Paulo, Brazil's economic powerhouse, holds up a bottle for his customers. He handles it as lovingly as a baby, then pours the wine into plastic cups. The pipes under the washbasins in the spotless toilets have been removed, so the water collects in bowls beneath and a notice asks customers to “please use this water to flush the toilets”. In the past few months this city of superlatives – the richest, most densely populated, with the most cars – has (...)
