This week, the most controversial event in Michel Temer's short term has come into light. It has been 4 years since it has started the greatest police operation in Brazil, Operação Lava-Jato(Jet-wash Operation), which has resulted in the inprisonment of multiple brazilian politicians and is oftenly compared to the Italian Mani pulite(clean hands). So far many politicians currently in execution of their function are being investigated, including multiple ministers appointed by Michel Temer and he himself.
Last Wednesday, May 17, the brazilian journalist Lauro Jardim published in O Globo that Michel Temer had a secret conversation with the businessman Joeasley Batista1 in which he(Joesley) was paying a bribe to Eduardo Cunha2 to avoid him telling anything to the investigators of Operação Lava-Jato; Temer replied saying that "it has to be maintained." The conversation was recorded and revealed by Joesley Batista.
