    The good news is that corruption, unaccounted cash, money laundering, undeclared accounts, etc, etc, criminal practices are on their way to get perfectly legalized in Brazil VERY soon!

    Too many mistakes in the headline:

    “Brazilian president accused of .........”:

    1º: REF: president: Which president?
    2º: REF: president: Shouldn't it be in PLURAL - presidents?
    3º: REF: president: Which president did NOT?
    4º: REF: president: Why only “A President” is being isolated?
    5º: REF: US$ 300.000: Is such a ridiculously small and a miserable amount - as compared to the stolen billions - why is this a news in the First place? :o))

    As I said in a different post, if Dilma wants to go after Temer with that accusation, she'll be pointing a finger at herself.....OR, perhaps she thinks that Temer, being the 'decorative' VP, would have been in a position to cream off - presuming that he did - more than she, Lula (as the president 'de-facto) and the PT did ?
    But if there's any truth to the accusation, and it's not just a campaign to smear his reputation, let them show the smoking gun...even though it would be a piss in the ocean compared to the US$ 6 billion the PT gang diverted from Petrobras.
