    On today's special episode of Loud & Clear, Brian Becker reacts to the news that Brazil's President Dilma Rousseff has been removed from office after her impeachment trial came to a close Wednesday afternoon.

    Becker is joined for the full hour by geopolitical analyst Pepe Escobar and Brazilian-British activist Victor Fraga of Democracy for Brazil UK. Dilma Rousseff has been removed from office following her impeachment trial as more than two thirds of the Upper House votes for her ouster. Michel Temer takes the reigns of the Presidency, but will his government have any legitimacy in the eyes of the people? Is the end of progressive rule in Brazil, or merely the beginning of a protracted struggle? And how will the new political situation in the country affect both the continent and global geopolitics?
