With the likely impeachment of Brazilian President Dilma Rousseff (and likely her VP Michel Temer) impending, the fate of Brazil is uncertain, as the nation will host the Olympics this August. She is one of the many politicians in that country involved in the Operação Lava Jato (Operation Car Wash) scandal.
The Câmara dos Deputados (Chamber of Deputies) voted to impeach her on April 17th, 2016 with a 367–137–7–2 vote, of which Deputado Bruno Araújo was the 342nd Yes vote. The Senado Federal will vote in the next few days whether to remove her from office.
In conclusion, impeaching Dilma will lead to a coup d’état orchestrated by right-wing forces akin to what they pulled off against João Goulart in 1964 (only this time, they are doing the Goularting in Congress, and not by the military junta) is a horrible idea.
