The Heat: Rousseff impeachment trial

A contrite and at times defiant Dilma Rousseff testifies before the Brazilian Senate in an effort to stave off impeachment.

CCTV America’s Nathan King hosts tonight’s show.

For Dilma Rousseff the spectacle of an impeachment trial, now in its fourth day, is nothing more than an attempted coup d’etat.

And while she stands accused of crimes against the state, many of those behind the impeachment, including interim President Michel Temer, have themselves been accused of corruption.
