Brazil and the Politics of Corruption

Hosted by

As Brazil prepares to host this summer's Olympic Games, it's transfixed by a spectacle of a different kind. A divided legislature is ousting the President of a beleaguered country about to host international athletes and the crowds who want to see them.

Later on the program, we update the ban on Russia's track-and-field athletes and new charges of Russian doping at the Winter Olympics in Sochi.
