In Brazil, President Michel Temer has been formally charged with corruption, a year after he backed the ouster of President Dilma Rousseff from office. Federal prosecutors accuse Temer of taking millions of dollars in bribes. Prosecutor Rodrigo Janot said Temer has "fooled Brazilian citizens." Temer, who rejected the allegations, is the country’s first sitting head of state to be formally charged with a crime. We speak with David Miranda, a journalist and the first LGBTQ member of the Rio City Council.
