Brazil Continues Court Trial on President's Legitimacy

Brazilian Federal Court

Brazilian Federal Court

Rio de Janeiro, June 8 (RHC)-- A court trial that could topple Brazilian President Michel Temer continues.  Temer is increasingly coming under pressure to resign, while the judicial process threatens to further jeopardize his executive power.

The court entered its third day of sessions on Thursday after deciding to delay the final decision of whether or not to accept allegations that could lead to Temer's removal from office.  

The delays are in line with analysts' predictions that the process could take weeks or even months as several judges have requested more time to study the case to continue the hearings.  The final ruling, which does not have a deadline, could leave Brazil without a president for a second time in just over a year after the impeachment of former President Dilma Rousseff, a process widely condemned as a parliamentary coup.
