From daily The Morning Star in Britain:
Temer faces graft probe
Monday 26th September 2015
Coup president accused over Petrobras bribes
by James Tweedie
Supreme Federal Tribunal Judge Teori Zavascki ordered a preliminary investigation into Mr Temer over allegations he solicited donations to his Brazilian Democratic Movement Party (PMDB) as part of the kickback conspiracy at state-run oil firm Petrobras.
Mr Temer, sworn in on August 31 within hours of the “legislative coup” against elected Workers Party president Dilma Rousseff, was accused in a statement by former Petrobras subsidiary Transpetro president Sergio Machado.
Mr Machado revealed that the president asked for campaign contributions out of the Petrobras bribery pot for the PMDB’s Sao Paulo mayoral candidate in 2012 — when he was still vice-president under Ms Rousseff.
These allegations were laid out in Mr Machado’s plea bargain for his role in the Petrobras scandal, in which he also decribed Mr Temer as “irresponsible, lying and criminal.”
The attorney general Rodrigo Janot will decide whether to procede with charges based on the investigation’s outcome.
The president is the latest and most important of many PMDB ministers and congresspeople to be snared in the Car Wash probe into the Petrobras debacle.
Senate President Renan Calheiros, another PMDB member, was also named in the probe by Judge Zavascki.
Four ministers in Mr Temer’s May-August interim government were forced to resign after recordings of their conversations with Mr Calheiros and others about blocking the Car Wash probe were leaked to the media.
Earlier this month lower Chamber of Deputies speaker Eduardo Cunha, who led the charge for Ms Rousseff’s impeachment, was himself removed from his seat — stripping him of his immunity from prosecution.
Mr Cunha, who is accused of taking millions in bribes, threatened to expose others embroiled in the scandal as revenge.

The brutal police repression unleashed against demonstrators at the May 24 “Occupy Brasília” march, and the “Guarantee of Law and Order” decree that sent 1,500 armed soldiers into the streets of Brazil’s capital, mark a definite bid by the crisis-ridden government of President Michel Temer (PMDB) to find a base of support within the military: here.
