The president of the Commission suing the Impeachment, Senator Raymond Lira (PMDB-PB), He resumed collegiate meeting rejecting the order of questions presented by the defense of President Dilma Rousseff. The rapporteur of the case, Senator Antonio Anastasia (PSDB-MG), also examined documents lodged and accepted two of them.

The meeting was suspended for two hours, early afternoon, for lunch and rest of parliamentarians. On the way back to work, Anastasia again rejected the applications calling for the inclusion, as evidence, of recordings made by former president of Transpetro, Sérgio Machado, conversations with PMDB leaders in the weeks before the removal of President Dilma. The recordings consist of plea bargaining of Machado and the request to include them in the process had already been done for the defense, early, and rejected by the rapporteur.

The rapporteur has accepted only the requirements that called for sending letters to the Court of Accounts of the Union and the National Treasury to provide information on the supplemental budget decrees and Harvest Plan, on issues where the president is away accused of responsibility for crime.

Among the points of order rejected by Lira, one was presented by Senator José Pimentel (FOR WHAT), in which he made request for views on the requirements which were accepted by Anastasia. Another application rejected by Lira was a new complaint of suspicion against the rapporteur, issue that had already been rejected sometimes by commission.

For a senator Simone Tebet (PMDB-MS), the insistence of the parliamentary defense and Dilma Rousseff this issue is a "disrespect" to the commission. "I want to know how many times this question will be displayed and how many times the decision of the committee will be disregarded", asked Senator.
