RIO DE JANEIRO — The fight over President Dilma Rousseff’s future has taken a strange twist in Congress, with the leader of the lower house saying senators can’t go ahead with an impeachment vote and the Senate leader insisting they will.
The latest chapter in Brazil’s political drama began Monday when the acting speaker of the Chamber of Deputies announced that he had annulled a majority vote by his own colleagues last month that favored ousting Rousseff and sent the matter to the Senate for a possible trial of the president.
