Leak ties president to oil corruption scandal

Voice recordings of bribery tie Brazil's third consecutive president to the Petrobras scandal and could keep the country in its current state of crisis for even longer.

Brazilian newspaper O Globo reports that Brazil's President Michel Temer is now fully involved in the corruption scandal concerning state-owned oil company Petrobras.

According to O Globo, the case's prosecutors are in possession of a tape recording, in which the president is allegedly talking about the bribery of former head of parliament Eduardo Cunha in an attempt to silence him about Temer's role in the matter. The leak of information has prompted demonstrations and demands of impeachment.
