Processing Distortion with Peter B. Collins: US Role in Unfolding Coup in Brazil?

Peter B. Collins presents Journalist Pepe Escobar

Following the dramatic April 17 vote to impeach Brazil’s President Dilma Rousseff, Pepe Escobar unpacks the layers of corruption in his native country and suspects an American role in the effort to take down the pro-workers PT party based on NSA surveillance of the state oil firm, Petrobras, and of Rousseff personally. We talk about the “Car Wash” corruption scandal that touches most elected officials, the brazen effort to remove a president who has not been charged with a “crime of responsibility” as required by law, and the scheming of the vice president, Michel Temer, who will serve as acting president if the Senate sustains the impeachment attempt.

*Pepe Escobar is a globetrotting reporter who writes for RT, Sputnik and TomDispatch. He is the author of Empire of Chaos and several other books.
