Brazil Plunges Back into Political Crisis
Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

News Event:
Brazilian President Michel Temer is denying a report that he endorsed bribing a now jailed former congressman to keep him quiet.

The allegation made in a Globo newspaper report could have widespread impact in a nation swamped by graft scandals and a populace furious about it.

Opposition politicians took to Twitter and local news channels to call for Temer to resign or be impeached, arguing his government no longer had legitimacy.
