READ HERE: Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro stepped down on December 30, 2022 and acknowledged defeat to socialist and convicted criminal, Lula da Silva. Bolsonaro said he had no support from other parties, parliament or any of the supreme court judges for a military reaction to October’s contested election result. Millions of his voters spent 60 days in front of military barracks supporting a military backlash against the election of Lula da Silva. Bolsonaro left Brazil and flew to Florida to join his family. Now that Bolsonaro is no longer president, he does not enjoy the political immunity that shielded him from criminal and electoral probes against him in the past four years.
