Senator Raimundo Lira, President of the Senate’s Impeachment Special Committee regarding Brazilian suspended President Dilma Rousseff, speaks during a session at the Congress in Brasilia on August 3, 2016.
On Tuesday, impeachment committee official Antonio Anastasia got things started by recommending that the body back the process to remove suspended Rousseff from office. The full Senate is due to hear the commission’s non-binding verdict on August 4. The Senate will then vote in a plenary session between August 25 and 27 on whether to remove Rousseff from office for good by impeaching her.
