Brazil court postpones case that could unseat Temer | Reuters

BRASILIA Brazil's top electoral court postponed on Tuesday for five working days a landmark case on illegal campaign funding that could remove President Michel Temer less than a year after he took over from impeached leftist Dilma Rousseff.

The Supreme Electoral Tribunal (TSE) agreed with a request from Rousseff's defense team for more time to study a 1,086-page report calling for the annulment of the 2014 election won by Rousseff and her running mate Temer.
