BRASILIA President Dilma Rousseff was expected to become Brazil's first leader in more than two decades to be removed from office as the Senate began a session on Wednesday that will vote on whether to try her for breaking budget rules.
If her opponents garner a simple majority in the 81-seat Senate, Rousseff will be suspended for up to six months during her trial, ending 13 years of leftist Workers Party rule in Latin America's largest economy.
