Brazil’s President Refuses to Resign

On Thursday, President Michael Temer of Brazil said in a five minute speech broadcast nationwide regarding a Supreme Court decision authorizing an investigation into allegations he condoned bribery of a potential witness in a major corruption probe, that he had done nothing wrong and would not resign from the presidency. He claimed his presidency was helping turn around Brazil’s economy and he welcomed an investigation so he could prove his innocence. “I did not buy the silence of anyone,” Temer said, referring to the allegations made against him. “I will not resign.”
