Does anybody want to bet how long before Bolsonaro has Rousseff arrested ?

Lula is serving 12 years in prison & Temer got arrested recently.

Weintraub, minister of education, decided to cut fund to the federal universities which allowed political activities inside their campuses. In the following day, he cancelled his decision, however, the cuts could take place in the second semester.

On May 15th, many students and professors went to the streets from all the Brazilian big cities in order to protest against the budget cuts for the federal universities and federal high schools. In São Paulo and Rio de Janeiro, there were >100.000 on the streets.

Bolsonaro told that the cuts were result of the lack of resources because of the fall of the tax revenue. However, the cuts have ideological motivations. The ministry of education has already told that he was going to fight against the marxist ideology of the federal universities. This is a threat to the academic freedom, when the government cuts funding of the universities because the universities teach topics which the government dislikes.

Pro-Bolsonaro rallies have been happening today, so far they have been reported in at least 52 cities and 12 states + Federal District. These people in the rallies are supporting government projects/acts like the pension reform, Moro's anticrime package and the extinction of some ministries. The calls to take part in these acts started after the May 15th protests against Bolsonaro.

So far there doesn't seem to be any official number of people in these rallies.

Edit: Now rallies have been reported in all states in 156 cities.

The anti-Bolsonaro pro-education rallies of students and teachers which took place on May 30th were not as big as the rallies of the May 15th, but they were much bigger than the pro-Bolsonaro rallies of the May 26th.

Some days ago Minister Sergio Moro had his cellphone hacked. Initially nothing too serious seemed to have happened but yesterday, journalists Glenn Greenwald, Alexandre de Sati and Rafael Moro de Martins from The Intercept released messages exchanged between Moro and Lava Jato prosecutors. According to the journalists, an anonymous source provided the private chats, audio recordings, videos and photos before Moro had his phone hacked.

Among the claims made by The Intercept, they said that one of the prosecutors, Deltan Dallagnol, who is a very important figure in Lava Jato expressed doubts whether there was sufficient information to establish Lula as guilty. It also claimed that Moro gave strategic advice to prosecutors.

The Intercept also said that many prosecutors expressed indignation when the Supreme Court justice Ricardo Lewandowski authorized the newspaper Folha de São Paulo to interview Lula during the election period. According to The Intercept, prosecutor Laura Tessler said that "an interview with Lula might elect Haddad if it happens close to the second round." The journalists also said that the prosecutors quickly started planning a way to prevent the interview from happening. When the authorization to interview Lula was revoked by Supreme Court judge Luiz Fux, the prosecutors commemorated according to The Intercept.

Vice President Hamilton Mourão said that Moro's messages posted by The Intercept are just private messages out of context. Moro said that he isn't even sure if those messages are real, but even if they are, the messages don't show any illegal action made by him.

The president of the senate, Davi Alcolumble announced that Justice Minister Moro is going to speak before the Constitution and Justice Committee on June 19th to explain the leaked conversations with Dallagnol.

The 2nd panel of the Supreme Court has defined that they are going to resume the debate on Lula's habeas corpus on June 25th, if 3 out of the 5 judges vote in favor of the habeas corpus, Lula would be released from jail. This habeas corpus was presented last year by Lula's defense after judge Moro accepted the invite to become justice minister made by Jair Bolsonaro. The 2nd panel started debating this on December, but the trial was suspended on December 4th after judge Gilmar Mendes requested a hearing, when he stopped the trial, two judges had voted and both voted against Lula's request.

The 2nd panel is composed by judges Marco Aurelio (voted against Lula's request), Carmen Lúcia (voted against), Gilmar Mendes (likely to vote in favor), Ricardo Lewandowski (likely to vote in favor) and Celso de Mello (who is probably going to be the vote that decides whether Lula gets out of jail or stays there).

The 2nd panel of the Supreme Court started discussing whether people can go to jail after getting convicted by an appellate court and before having exhausted all their appeals. Justice Lewandoswki voted that people can not go the jail before exhausting all their appeals, however, the other 4 justices voted to bring this issue to the plenary of the court, this means that all the judges, regardless of which panel they belong, are going to vote on this.

Bolsonaro has remained pretty quiet about the issue with Moro but other public figures have talked about it. Chief of Staff of the Presidency, Onyx Lorenzoni, defended Moro and downplayed the accusation against Moro and called him a "hero who helped to save Brazil from PT".

Three supreme court justices have also talked about the accusations against Moro. Gilmar Mendes said that even if the evidence against Moro was obtained in an illegal manner it would still be valid against him. Marco Aurelio said the opposite that Gilmar said, arguing that using evidence obtained illegally could represent a setback to democracy. Justice Luís Roberto Barroso criticized the "joy coming from the corrupts" after the messages were released by The Intercept.

Former judge Moro's and attorney Dallanol's actions were ilegal. The judge should be neutral between the attorney, who makes the accusation, and the lawyer, who makes the defense. Moro was clearly pro-accusation. Article 254 of the Brazilian code of penal procedure makes clear that the judge is not allowed to have private conversations with the important actors before the trial. The Intercept published that Moro and Dallanol had lot of private chat and that Moro helped Dallanol.
Lula's trial can become invalid and Lula can be released.
But Moro and Dallanol can not be sued because their chat was found through ilegal means. That is ironic, because Dallanol wanted in the past that ilegal proofs could be used in the trials. Dallanol was saved because his own proposal was not implemented.

Intercept showed new messages, in which former judge Sérgio Moro asked attorney Deltan Dallanol why former president Fernando Henrique Cardoso (PSDB) was being investigated by the Car Wash Operation. Dallanol answered that it was necessary to create a image that Car Wash was not partisan and not anti-PT biased. Moro answered that it was better not to investigate Cardoso, because the former president might became angry and his endorsement was important for the sucess of the Car Wash Operation.

It is ilegal a judge advise an attorney who should and who should not be investigated.
