Independent auditors hired by Brazil’s Senate said in a report released Monday that suspended President Dilma Rousseff didn’t engage in the creative accounting she was charged with at her impeachment trial.
For supporters of the embattled leader, the report underscores how fragile the case is.
But backers of her once ally-turned-enemy and acting President Michel Temer say that the document requested by the Senate’s impeachment commission won’t change her slim chances of returning to office.
The report says Rousseff did not delay payments to state-run banks as charged. That would have violated Brazil’s fiscal laws.
