The prosecutors are charging Lula, his nephew, and Odebrecht:
Former Brazilian President Lula da Silva Faces New Corruption Charges. Prosecutors say he used influence to get loans for construction company Odebrecht in kickback scheme
A judge in Brasília would have to accept the charges for Mr. da Silva to face trial. He is already a defendant in two other federal cases on charges of attempted obstruction of justice, corruption and money laundering in connection with a sprawling embezzlement scheme at the state-run oil company Petróleo Brasileiro SA, known as Petrobras.

Under capitalism, the rich become powerful. Under socialism, the powerful become rich. (I think I heard this from Dennis Prager, but I’m not totally certain about who first said it.)

Yes, these self-appointed communist saviors of the poor don’t mind having a swiss bank acccount or two. The Venezuelans will never recover the billions stolen by the Chavistas and we would all like to see what the Castros have stashed away. At least Brazil took these people down before they could dismantle the country’s democracy like they have done elsewhere. And, of course, it is all a capitalist, imperialist, right-wing, CIA, bourgeois, lizard people plot like everything else.
