A weekend vote by Brazilian lawmakers to impeach President Dilma Rousseff was only one step in the push to unseat her. But the lopsided tally sent a resounding message about the depths of her political collapse.
Bribe money from a giant corruption scheme at Brazilian state oil company Petrobras went into President Dilma Rousseff' reelection campaign coffers, a former CEO has told prosecutors, according to a report released Thursday.
A 25-year-old Brazilian mayor who reveled in posting glamorous pictures of herself on social media and who is suspected of embezzling from the town coffers has surrendered after vanishing for more than a month.
Brazilian police have asked the Supreme Court for permission to question former president Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva, who they say may have benefited from the corruption scandal roiling state oil giant Petrobras.
