BRASILIA — A defiant Dilma Rousseff delivered what may be her last speech as president of Brazil on Monday, appealing to senators not to vote for her ouster in a controversial impeachment trial that was postponed until the Rio Olympics concluded.
During an emotional address, Rousseff referred to the torture she suffered as a left-wing guerrilla who was imprisoned by Brazil’s military dictatorship. She said the attempt to impeach her amounted to a coup that would only worsen Brazil’s political and economic crisis.
