the government-operated energy company Petrobras.
Brazilian courts say she used government money in her presidential

strengthen the country’s economy.
In March, an estimated one million Brazilians joined protests to demand
the president’s removal from office.

Congressmen, would have to vote in support of the request.
The process then would move on to Brazil’s Senate.
Two-thirds of the Senate, or 54 Senators, have to approve the process
within 180 days.
During that time, the president would be temporarily out of office.
If the process is approved, Dilma Rousseff would be impeached.
