Brazil’s President Michel Temer faced calls for his impeachment Wednesday (May 17) after a report that he had been recorded discussing payments of hush money to a corrupt politician.
Temer immediately denied the report in O Globo newspaper.
According to the report, which could not be immediately verified, an executive from the meatpacking giant JBS, Joesley Batista, met Temer on March 7.
During the meeting, the report said, Batista recorded himself telling Temer that he was paying money to buy the silence of disgraced ex-speaker of the lower house Eduardo Cunha.
