Brazil's Temer: "I Will Not Resign, I Have Nothing To Hide"

Tyler Durden's picture

In a press conference held moments ago by Brazil's embattled president Michel Temer, unable to scapegoat the latest political scandal rocking Brazil on Russia, he said that contrary to what some were expecting, he would not resign as he has "nothing to hide", and that he "never bought anyone's silence", meaning that once again Brazil is faced with the daunting prospect of having a painfully unpopular president who will most likely be impeached, yet who refuses to step down voluntarily, or quietly.

Here are the highlights from his brief address to the nation via BBG:

  • TEMER: I WANT TO MAKE DECLARATION
  • TEMER: I REQUESTED TO HEAR AUDIOS FROM BRAZIL TOP COURT
  • TEMER: YESTERDAY'S REVELATION BROUGHT BACK GHOST OF POL. CRISIS
  • TEMER: WE CAN'T THROW OUT OUR WORK
  • TEMER: I NEVER AUTHORIZED BRIBES TO STAY QUIET
  • TEMER: I DON'T HAVE ANYTHING TO HIDE
  • TEMER: I NEVER BOUGHT ANYONE'S SILENCE
  • TEMER: I WILL NOT STEP DOWN
  • TEMER: I WILL NOT RESIGN

Temer also said the he will fight the corruption charges in court, which means that instead of reform, Brazil now faces a long, painful legal process in which the highly unpopular president will instead focus on preserving his career, even as the formal impeachment protocol was started earlier today with a filing by the Brazilian opposition.

The Brazilian Real, having regained some lost ground during the day, dropped again during the Temer address.

Brazil's big construction company Odebrecht is involved in at least one big scandal here in Peru.  In Brazil as well I believe, maybe Colombia too.  A very dirty company (they bribe everyone...).

They also are doing reconstruction of an expressway in Miami.  Hmm..............

Bringing down the BRICS nations helps the petro dollar. Wheels within wheels.

As the BRIC nations were emerging and speaking of multiple deals without the dollar a couple of years back ironically they all started having economic problems or sanctions put on them.

A LOT of beta testing going on.  1) Check and see what markets do when a Special Prosecutor is aquired 2) Have the BoJ and ECB flood the market with yen and euros 3)  Have scandel hit Brazil....

Total chaos ensues, but then have Comey say the DoJ did not issue a stand down order - which he also hinted that they told him they would not fund any further inquiries - and have the dollar rally, which is easy when the ECB and BoJ had just flooded the market with their respected currencies.  

Beta test, plain and simple.  Just to BTFD, and rehash a plan when shit does hit the fan and the bankers need to liquidate.There will be a few months pause, but come next fall we will see a large drop in stocks and a rise in precious metals.

Nothing says High Moral Standing and Deep Values better than an extremely hot young wife.

Met his wife when she was a 19-yr-old beauty pageant winner and he was 62.

So he also violated the "Divide by 2 and add 7" rule.

  Fuck, where did that rule come from? I am off by +11 yrs.

  Dude needs to hide his woman before someone steals her.Not that he cares, he can replace her rather quickly. It's good to be King or similar facsimile thereof.

He did NOTHING WRONG!!! Now if he spit on the sidewalk he's going to prison like the rest of us. But hey, taking bribes, lying and thieving, THATS HIS JOB. And he's doing it so well.

Trump did it!  It's in Comeys notes for crying out loud!

Well, Temer is just saying exactly what Rousseff said before she was impeached: "I am innocent, I have nothing to hide blah blah"

The evidence proved otherwise and she was gone, but not before a long hard fight.

If Temer gets impeached, it will be justice given that he was in the shadows pulling the levers of Rousseff's impeachment.

DEMIZEN's picture

until the peeps had it and install some crazy fuck who is going execute or send to exile every motherfucking one of them.

sinbad2's picture

Actually there was no evidence against Rousseff, it was a political hit arranged by the US, who picked Temer.

Of course Temer is crooked, has the US ever installed an honest leader?

smacker's picture

The actual reason for her indictment was that she fiddled the financial figures on something or other.

She admitted that but claimed previous presidents have all done the same thing (almost certainly true) and it had never led to impeachment.

Apart from that, I agree with your other comments.

he has nothing to hide because it is already hidden in that women, catch my drift, huh, huh?
