SHAMED AND ARROGANT BRAZILIAN PRESIDENT DILMA ROUSSEFF IS FIRED IN EXTRAORDINARY IMPEACHMENT VOTE OV
Rousseff has denied any wrongdoing and insisted that the impeachment process was aimed at protecting the interests of the country's economic elite.
She added "allegations" amounted to a "coup d'etat," stating that her right-wing political rivals had been trying to remove her from office right from when she was elected
"From the day after I was elected, several measures were taken to destabilize my government. And you have been systematically making accusations against me," she said while she was defending herself in the Senate on Monday.
Outsted president Dilma Rousseff pictured defending herself during the impeachment trial on Monday.
Her impeachment was expected to bar her from office of any kind for eight years. But the Brazilian Senate had a second vote on that issue, and -42 voted in favor and 36 against so it failed to reach the necessary votes to pass the ban.
It means Dilma Rousseff has the right to run for office again.
