Can Michel Temer Be Impeached? Brazilian President Charged With Taking Multi-Million Dollar Bribes

Brazilian President Michel Temer was charged of taking multimillion-dollar bribes by top federal prosecutor, Monday. The 64-page-long indictment looks to impeach the incumbent president if he does not resign first. The formal accusation has been brought on by Attorney General Rodrigo Janot, who began investigation into Temer’s financial dealings in May 2016. Janot has alleged that between March and April of 2017, the Brazilian president took a bribe of around $150,000 from Joesly Batista, former chairman of meat-packing giant JBS.
