The office of Judge Sergio Moro confirms Wednesday’s arrest of former Congressman Eduardo Cunha. He’s accused of taking millions of dollars in bribes — accusations he denies.
Cunha began the process of impeaching Rousseff in December when he was speaker of the lower house of Congress. That led to a vote to remove her from office in August.
Cunha resigned as speaker in July and was stripped of his congressional seat in September.
