Brazil congressional report favors impeaching President Rousseff
By Maria Carolina Marcello BRASILIA (Reuters) - Brazilian President Dilma Rousseff moved closer to impeachment when a key member of a Congressional committee said on Wednesday there were grounds for the Senate to put her on trial for manipulating budget accounts in 2014 to boost her reelection prospects. Congressman Jovair Arantes told the 65-member lower house committee there were "minimal indications" that Rousseff had committed an impeachable crime, but that it was up to the Senate to judge the president. If two-thirds of the chamber approve the motion, Rousseff will be sent for trial in the Senate.
