Dear Ms. Christiane Amanpour,
Mr. Glenn Greenwald told you that plutocrats are using “anti-democratic means” to impeach President Dilma Rousseff.
We must say that Mr. Greewald lied to you because he has connections with Workers’ Party supporters.
To be re-elected in 2014, President Dilma Rousseff violated our Constitution defrauding the government budget and hiding a deficit close to US$15 billion. Our laws consider this a serious crime (and this is a serious crime in any civilized country). By doing so, she worsened the economic crisis affecting especially the poorest — economic crisis caused by her continuous fiscal irresponsibility.
But President Dilma Rousseff committed other crimes.
It’s not true that she was cleared in Petrobras corruption scandal. The latest investigations of Operation Car Wash show that President Dilma Rousseff is deeply implicated in it.
She was elected and re-elected with money stolen from Petrobras, the large Brazilian oil company that was destroyed by the corruption schemes of Workers’ Party and its political allies. Her campaign money was dirty as revealed by whistleblowers to Sergio Moro, the judge leading the Petrobras corruption investigation.
We would like to remind that thousands of American shareholders of Petrobras lost large amounts of money because of corruption scandal. As a result, President Dilma Rousseff, as former head of Petrobras board, faces a huge class action in Manhattan.
President Dilma Rousseff also attempted to obstruct justice by appointing Lula, the former president, as a minister. This would place him out of reach of Sergio Moro.
For all these reasons, President Dilma Rousseff will be impeached. It is a lie that the process of impeachment is a coup. The Congress proceeds strictly within the Constitution limits as stated by Brazilian Supreme Court. President Dilma Rousseff and Workers’ Party just try to create a smokescreen over their crimes and fool the international press. Mr. Greenwald is helping them.
