In the midst of the crisis that arose because of the Miranda brothers’ denunciations, the Jair Bolsonaro government’s riot police at Covid’s CPI had already drafted the strategy.
It will use petitions and speeches to defend investigations into the contracting of the vaccine, arguing, behind the scenes, that nothing will be found. The assessment is that the possible “rollers”, as the problems of Ricardo Barros (PP-PR) in the Ministry of Health have been called, will not slip into the president.
The government’s bill, however, is risky, in the opinion of experienced politicians, even if the president has no direct relationship with an alleged deviation. First, because there is an accusation that Bolsonaro would have done nothing even though he knew of alleged robbery in his government.
Second, because Barros is the leader of the government, part of the center, which was embraced from the beginning in practice and in speech by Bolsonaro.
Third, the poll can expand and reach other issues that are currently not known, which can further erode the government.
“The government wants me to investigate,” Senator Marcos Rogério (DEM-RO) tells the Panel. The government official asked in applications filed at the CPI this Monday (28) sharing the commission’s data with the Federal Police, the Federal Public Ministry and the Office of the Comptroller General.
