Alwaght- Brazil's new interim president, Michel Temer, previously spied for the United States spy agencies in the country, WikiLeaks documents show.
According to the whistleblowing website, Temer communicated with the US embassy in Brazil via telegram, and such content would be classified as "sensitive" and "for official use only."
Two cables were released, dated January 11, 2006 and June 21, 2006.
One shows a document sent from Sao Paolo, Brazil, to - among other recipients - the US Southern Command in Miami. In it, Temer discusses the political situation in Brazil during the presidency of Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva.
Regarding the 2006 elections, when Lula was re-elected, Temer shared scenarios in which his party (PMDB) would win the elections.
He declined to predict the race, however, but said there would be a run-off and that "anything could happen."
Temer said the PMDB would elect between 10 and 15 governors that year, and that the party would have the most representatives in the Senate and thus the House of Representatives. This would mean that the elected president would have to report to PMDB rule.
"Whoever wins the presidential election will have to come to us to do anything," Temer reportedly said.
Temer is acting as Brazilian after Dilma Rousseff was on Thursday suspended from office after the Senate voted to put her on trial for allegedly breaking budget laws.
Rousseff, speaking shortly before she left Brasilia's Planalto presidential palace, said was notified of her suspension. She didn't mince words as she began the fight of her political life.
"I may have made mistakes but I did not commit any crime," Rousseff said in an angry address, calling the impeachment "fraudulent" and "a coup." The leftist leader, 68, was flanked by dozens of ministers who were leaving with her administration.
Rousseff, an economist and former member of a Marxist guerrilla group who was the country's first woman president, is unlikely to be acquitted in her trial.
President Rousseff's transformative social programs have lifted tens of millions of people from poverty.
