In Brazil, former Speaker Eduardo Cunha, who led the impeachment of former President Dilma Rousseff, is facing possible arrest on charges of perjury and corruption, after he was expelled from the lower house Monday. Cunha’s charges stem from his secret Swiss bank accounts, which he’s lied about. His expulsion strips him of his congressional immunity. Meanwhile, Brazil has ratified the Paris climate deal. Brazil is responsible for emitting about 2.5 percent of global greenhouse gas emissions.
