Court Trial To Determine Fate Of Brazilian Presidency


According to Reuters news agency, on Tuesday Brazils top electoral court will begin hearing the case of President Michel Temer's 2014 election campaign. It has been alleged that illegal money was used to fund the campaign. The court could take weeks to rule on the case as the country continues to face political drama. If President Michel Temer's presidency is terminated, it would be the second time in as many months the country has ousted a sitting president. If Termer is found guilty, it is likely that he will delay the process for many months, by appealing the decision.
