Banana Republic style justice

"Former Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro called for the Senate to bring charges against two Supreme Court justices, warning of an "institutional rupture" in his latest clash with the judiciary as investigations threaten him and his allies.

Supreme Court Justices Alexandre de Moraes had jailed the head of a party allied with Bolsanaro, the far-right president in a probe of online misinformation and anti-democratic threats. He opened a probe of Bolsonaro for posting confidential material on social media in his push to substantiate unproven allegation of election fraud. Bolsanaro called Justice Moraes him a "son of a whore."

Facing the expanding legal probes and legislative defeat for his proposal to overhaul Brazil's voting systems, Bolsonaro has already threatened to respond outside his constitutional limits. Bolsanaro took part in an unusual military display outside the presidential palace ahead of a key congressional vote. - Reuters
