The Debate

The road to impeachment: Will Brazil's Dilma Rousseff survive? (part 1)

After a stormy debate, a congressional committee voted 38 to 27 to recommend impeaching Brazilian President Dilma Rousseff. A vote will be held in the lower house of Congress this weekend. Rousseff is facing a huge corruption scandal, historically low approval ratings... and her political enemies are going in for the kill. Pro and anti-impeachment camps are currently trying to win over lawmakers one by one ahead of the vote. Can she survive?
