Gilmar Mendes allied with Augusto Aras to torpedo the Lava Jato.
He told Estadão:
“An entity has been created that does not exist anywhere, which even signs a press release.”
Gilmar Mendes defends “the restructuring of the PGR with mechanisms to prevent, according to him, the weakening of the attorney general before the powerful task forces. One of the proposals is the freedom for the president to choose a PGR from outside the Public Ministry ”.
Gilmar Mendes’ interest is purely republican, of course.
