Lula is a former union leader who fought Brazil's military dictatorship (1964-1985), then became one of the country's most popular presidents with an anti-poverty crusade. Read full article

    Moro “Hid Lava Jato’s collusion with the USA”
    “Two days before he left the government, Moro’s Ministry refused to hand over information on cooperation with North American authorities on Lava Jato, which we have proved was illegal. The Brazilian state should exhibit transparency on this subject, without undue intervention,” wrote Zanin on Twitter.
    According Folha de São Paulo reporter Wálter Nunes, Lula’s defense team has been trying to access these documents since March 16. The defense team cites a 2017 speech by US DOJ Deputy Attorney General Kenneth Blanco in which he talks about their relationship with the Lava Jato task force in Curitiba.
    According to Blanco, the US DOJ helped “in the collection of evidence and in the construction of the case”, which resulted in former President Lula’s political imprisonment. Zanin views this collaboration as illegal and claims that it is the defense team’s right to have access to all documents related to it. “We have already proven that there was cooperation between US authorities and the Lava Jato task force in the case against former President Lula, which was not documented in the trial and is therefore illegal. What we are now trying to find out is exactly what this cooperation was and the names of everyone who participated in this illegal act”, he said.

    ”Brazil: blow to Bolsonaro as judge orders release of expletive-ridden video
    An expletive-ridden video showing Brazilian president Jair Bolsonaro expressing frustration at his inability to get information from police and vowing to change cabinet ministers if needed to protect his family has been released at the order of a supreme court justice in a new blow to the far-right president.
    The two-hour video of a cabinet meeting, with portions redacted, was released as part of an inquiry into allegations that the president was trying to illegally interfere in a criminal investigation of his son, a claim made by former justice minister Sergio Moro when he resigned last month.

    So what ? Stale news.....and I'm definitely not losing any sleep over a matter of fact I find it quite entertaining....just like your silly rants, passing on old you may have noted, at the moment, I am the only other poster on here, and I sure get the the news before you do.

    And just fyi, not that it'll help your damaged brain much, although the pretty obvious reason behind Bolsonaro's attempts to obtain confidential information from the head of the Federal Police in Rio (since last August), was because of his son's involvement with Fabricio Queiroz, the inquiry at the moment is simply about whether he was trying to interfere or not....the alleged reason behind it supports Moro's accusations, however, is not what is being investigated in this inquiry.

    “Stale news.....” Hardly since the time stamp makes it current as it the first English language publication available at Sat 23 May 2020 02.00 BST,
    “you are a good inflater of dolls”.
    Your transference/projection is going very well, as you keep resurrecting your playthings.
    ”Remember to kiss Long-Dong goodnight” I thought struck, me as to who or what is this you're babbling about? So I googled it. Lo and behold, now you've exposed as to how you have been spending your recreational time, you nasty little pervert Hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha”

    This sounds about the 10th time you've googled your favorite Long Dong Silver it to discover some new device you aren't taking advantage of ?
    I googled 'Gollum in Canada', and 'Lo and behold', found a story about some slimy creature living in his mother's basement, who loves to feel LDS's dong grow in his mouth as he inflates it....'you nasty little pervert', you......

    Those words are solely your creation, your attempted 'transference' leaves you with the sole liability.
    “He didn't know who Long Dong Silver is” I certainly didn't Ollie, and you most certainly did. Which means you must have some interest, to have acquired the knowledge. I can't say playing in the gutter had any particular appeal to me. But, it is all the more remarkable is the resurfacing of LDS solely as a result of your thoughts entirely. Thus, confirming the accuracy of my claim, of your psychological transference, or projection. So thanks for the confirmation and insight. So all is revealed, what a dipshit.

    “I certainly didn't Ollie”.......just one more lie to add to the collection....repeated over and over again until you convince yourself.....tut, tut...

    Must've been imagining someone like you when he said it.

    Your turn Gollum...

    “just one more lie to add ” No the onus is on you meeting your obligatory burden of proof. ”ei incumbit probatio, qui dicit, non qui negat (cum per rerum naturam factum negantis probation nulla sit)-the burden of proof lies upon him who affirms, not on him who denies, (since by the nature of things, he who denies a fact cannot produce any proof). The claimant is always bound to prove: the burden of proof lies on him. Upon the one alleging, not upon him denying, rests the duty of proving. Upon the plaintiff rests the proving or the burden of proof,”

    “am sure LDS can tell you.” I'm certain you know since you are the only one between us that has always raised the issue first, as it's more of your projecting.
    ”What is Psychological Projection (In Layman’s Terms)?
    What happens when you have a whole bunch of uncomfortable, embarrassing and annoying emotions that you don’t want to unconsciously deal with? According to famous psychologist Sigmund Freud these emotions are projected on to other people, so that other people become carriers of our own perceived flaws. Fortunately (or unfortunately) for us, this form of emotional displacement makes it much easier to live with ourselves … because everyone else is responsible for our misery – not us!
    As a result of externalizing our emotions and perceiving them in others, we continue suffering terribly, often creating false self-images that portray us as “the victim” or “the good/righteous person” when the reality is that we aren’t.”
