Brazil President says She Won't Quit After Impeachment Vote

Speaking a day after suffering a major defeat in the lower chamber of Congress, Rousseff says she will continue fighting those trying to remove her from office

Brazil Political Crisis

BRASILIA, Brazil — Brazilian President Dilma Rousseff says she won’t step down despite the lower Chamber of Deputies voting in favor of impeaching her.

Speaking a day after suffering a major defeat in the lower chamber of Congress, Rousseff says she will continue fighting those trying to remove her from office.

In her words, “I have the energy, strength and courage to confront this injustice.”

The measure to impeach Rousseff now goes to the Senate. If the Senate takes it up, she will be suspended while a trial is conducted.

Rousseff is accused of using state bank money to plug holes in the federal budget. She argues that previous presidents did similar things and stresses that she has not been charged with a crime.
