the president of Federal Senate, Rodrigo Pacheco (DEM-MG), decided to cancel all activities of the House, including remote sessions and committee meetings, which were scheduled for Wednesday and Thursday, the 8th and 9th, respectively. The decision was taken by the senator after the acts in favor of the government of Jair Bolsonaro and democracy carried out today, September 7th. In Pacheco’s view, Bolsonaro’s statements during the events in Brasília and São Paulo meant that there was no climate for votes and the guarantee of the senators and servants of the House. During his speech to supporters, who are concentrated at the height of MASP, the head of the Executive openly threatened not to comply with the orders of the minister of the Supreme Court (STF), Alexandre de Moraes, and stated that “only God” removes him from the presidency. “Sai, Alexandre de Moraes, stop being a scoundrel. Stop oppressing the Brazilian people, stop censoring your Brazilian people,” he said on Avenida Paulista.
