On paper, Ms Rousseff’s main sin is resorting to accounting trickery in order to disguise the true size of the budget deficit.

Congress members are preparing to sit all hours to determine Ms Rousseff’s political fate over allegations of manipulating public accounts during her first term.

He rebutted allegations that she broke the law by taking out loans from state banks to cover up a budget deficit, saying opposition lawmakers were reaching for an excuse to oust their rival.
Temer, who is the leader of the Democratic Movement, would assume the presidency if Rousseff was impeached for breaking fiscal laws.
The Globe and Mail
