Brazil's Supreme Court Releases Testimony Implicating President Temer
Brazil's Supreme Court released plea-bargain testimony implicating the nation's president in a bribery scheme.
According to the testimony, President Michel Temer received about $4.
6 million in bribes from executives of meatpacking giant JBS SA.
However, these bribes were exchanged in 2014 before he took office.
The scathing testimony does not bode well for Brazil's top executive office.
Temer recently took over for ex-President Dilma Rousseff, who was impeached late last year.
According to the testimony, Rousseff received $30 million in bribes from offshore accounts owned by JBS, while former President Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva received $50 million from JBS..
