Prosecutors just delivered a blow to political stability in Brazil. 

Federal prosecutors have charged President Michel Temer with taking bribes worth millions of dollars.

In order for a trial to proceed, the lower House of Congress must pass a vote with a two-thirds majority. However, politicians in Temer's coalition are confident that they will be able to secure enough votes to block the majority and stop the prosecution.

President Michel Temer has repeatedly denied any wrongdoing and claimed he is innocent.
