Brazil leader denies report he endorsed bribing ex-lawmaker

Federal police officers, carrying seized items, leave the building where Brazilian Sen.

As Brazil's capital fell back into crisis mode, military police moved into position around the presidential palace and one of the judges on Brazil's Supreme Court called for calm.

Rousseff was impeached past year for breaking budgetary laws, but she and her supporters have accused Temer, her vice president, of orchestrating her ouster as part of a soft "coup" meant to halt the Car Wash investigation.

After an emergency meeting with top allies, President Temer released a statement Wednesday night denying any wrongdoing. "We want democracy, we are outraged with this putschist president", Rocha, a university professor, said. The most alarming fact about the request is that, according to O Globo, Neves' suggests that the person receiving the money should be eliminated physically. The real could fall to 3.75 per dollar under the worst-case scenario, he said. Aecio Neves, who almost won the presidency in 2014 and planned to run again next year. A giant swath of the political class, including a third of senators and almost a third of cabinet ministers, are under investigation or indictment in connection with Lava Jato.

Neves' whereabouts Thursday were not known.

President Michel Temer of Brazil has denied a newspaper report that he approved payments to silence a possible witness in a corruption inquiry.

The presidency of Brazil's Michel Temer, who replaced disgraced and impeached predecessor Dilma Rousseff last summer, lasted about one year without a major corruption scandal.

Cuhna was sentenced to 15 years in prison in March after being found guilty of accepting more than $1.5 million in bribes.

O Globo reported that Batista, his brother Wesley and five JBS employees testified as part of a plea bargain.

Oops! Bella Hadid suffers wardrobe malfunction at Cannes
Ratajkowski is also wearing faux bangs like Hadid did a year ago for her Cannes debut (in that iconic red silk dress). Bella Hadid's arrival at the 2017 Cannes Film Festival was one that turned heads, including her own.

Jornal O Globo said Joesley Batista visited Temer at his official residence in Brasília on March 7 while carrying a hidden recording device.

JBS representatives did not respond to emails sent by The Associated Press seeking comment. Opposition and allied leaders alike have called the President to resign. However, they appear to have had a falling out amid a growing investigation into corruption involving the state oil giant Petrobras.

The news of the recordings spread quickly throughout congress on Wednesday afternoon, leading Chamber of Deputies President, Rodrigo Maia, to interrupt Chamber sessions.

Three people with direct knowledge of the investigation said the O Globo report was accurate.

Last week, Temer marked his first year in office, expressing optimism about reforms planned for Brazil's weak economy amid a slump in voter support.

Markets plummeted on opening as investors reacted to the crisis, as well as turmoil around US President Donald Trump, with fears that Temer's center-right government will be hamstrung in its attempt to push through austerity reforms.

Brazilian stocks were set to crash on an emerging scandal involving the country's recently installed president.

The report also cited Senator Aecio Neves, president of the Brazilian Social Democracy Party, which is Temer's main ally in Congress.
