    I wish Dallagnol and Judge Moro the best of luck in trying to put all those indicted in the Lava-Jato, behind bars.

    @1 I am glad for this investigation, and I wish it success. At the same time, I worry that it's not going to do enough. I hope that it gets done sooner than later.

    your reason for concern is justified. Brazil does not have the best reputation when it comes down to the politicians taking the right decisions. Bribery, even at this point, is all too present.

    Brazil is once again in serious need of a major communist scums' clean-up, included this socialist illiterate women sapiens liar, along with her own dismembered 4th grader school dropped-out nine fingers communist skunk, and followed with every single criminal, who belongs to an underground criminal organization installed in Brazil back in mid 90's under Sao Paulo's Communist Forum, used commonly to supported and harbored terrorist and communist countries, included Cuba, Venezuela and many more !......

    Not to mention that Rousseff's and Lula's supports Colombia's outlaw guerrilla, commonly recognized as FARC's in exchange for an illegal drugs smuggling within Brazil's boarders under Venezuela's Disodado Cabello supervision.

    The Foro de São Paulo is the multi-headed hydra that must be stopped. A good resource for those of you who read and understand Portuguese would be Olavo de Carvalho's criticisms of that organization. You might be able to find the information in Spanish and English too, just that you might have to dig a little deeper.

    I know. I've already read enough of it to know what they have in mind for Brazil. It's enough make your hair stand on end. Lula has to kick the bucket, and then there's a good chance that without that s.o.b. around, the PT's radical group will fizzle out, or at least distance itself from that communist rancidity.
