Held down, Renan gives up support impeachment JanotRenan allies, including Michel Temer the advised against proceeding with the threat of opening a process of impeachment.
Still angry with the offensive of the Attorney General of the Republic, Rodrigo Janot, against him and other lawmakers, Senate President, Renan Calheiros (PMDB-AL), He abandoned the strategy to embarrass him by threatening to trigger impeachment proceedings and decided to rescue a bill that can achieve the performance of the prosecution.
After making direct attacks on the work of the prosecutor and threaten the deterrent, Renan want to set punishments for officials who commit abuses.
The PMDB started the assault Janot shortly after the Supreme Court denied the request for his arrest, done just by the prosecutor during Operation Lava Jato.
Renan allies, or even interim president, Michel Temer, However, the advised against proceeding with the threat to initiate proceedings for two reasons.
The first is that the applications are, mostly, weak legally to support the case.
The second is that such a process would generate wear for Temer government, that would have to manage the charge that would be acting to interfere with the progress of Lava Jato.
So far, They were presented 11 requests for definitive impediment Janot. The latter was filed in the Senate last Thursday (30).
Of these, Renan had already filed four. The others were sent to the law-general of the Senate. The PMDB has said it needs an opinion from the body to decide on applications, but allies say their strategy is to let the matter be forgotten, since there is no deadline for the lawyers of the House deem an answer.
Asked last week about claims, Renan said only that he would send a new request to the law of the House and would wait for a response.
Investigated by Lava Jato, now he wants to proceed with the bill on abuse of authority, which was presented in 2009 e, since then, He stood in the House of Representatives.
According to the PMDB, he was desengavetado the request of the Minister of the Supreme Gilmar Mendes and must be voted up 13 July, before the recess Parliament.
The minister confirmed on Friday (1º) making the request and also defended the project approval. They say the proposal “It has nothing to do with the Lava Jato”.
“Brazil has an abuse of authority catalog from A to Z. This goes from the corner guard up, sometimes, President of the Republic”, said Mendes.
The minister said it is very difficult to establish what is the ideal time for a project to be considered by Congress and ruled out the possibility of a form of pressure against the prosecution.
Mendes reminded that the legislation that deals with this topic is 1965 and is “almost naive” for our times. “So we want to typify the situations that are common and that has nothing to do with that particular topic”, said.
