June 15 , 2016
A committee has voted in favor of stripping Eduardo Cunha of his seat. Cunha, Brazil's suspended lower house Speaker, is seen as the architect of President Dilma Rousseff’s impeachment process. Cunha has been accused of lying about undeclared Swiss bank accounts; however, he has denied the accusations. The lower house of Congress now needs to take a vote on Cunha’s case.
