    Brazilian Senate issued a report saying that there are no evidences of Dilma Rousseff involving in the country's budget manipulations, a Latin-American broadcaster reported.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — TeleSUR said Monday that Senate's analysts prepared a report, showing that Roussef did not participate in the fiscal wrongdoing directly and could not bear personal responsibility.

    The report, saying that there were no reasons to continue the impeachment process against Rousseff, should be analyzed by the Senate Impeachment Commission in a three-day period, the broadcaster added.

    Despite the report, Brazilian lawmakers would gather to find out whether the impeachment should be confirmed on August 9, according to the media outlet.

    In May, the upper house of the Brazilian parliament voted 55-22 to start impeachment proceedings against Rousseff after she was accused of concealing the country’s budget deficit ahead of the 2014 re-election. Rousseff regards the impeachment proceedings as a coup attempt.

    Roussef has been suspended from office for 180 days, pending trial. Vice President Michel Temer is assuming presidency during that period.
