Brazilian president’s impeachment process back on track as speaker backtracks

Brazilian President Dilma Rousseff’s looming suspension from office was back on track on Tuesday after the speaker of the lower house of Congress withdrew his controversial decision to annul an impeachment vote against her. The Senate will vote on Wednesday whether to put Rousseff on trial for breaking budget laws. If, as is widely expected, a simple majority agrees to hold the trial, she will be automatically suspended from office for up to six months. Vice President Michel Temer would take over as president, and if Rousseff were convicted and removed definitively, he would stay in the post until elections…

Mexican judge rules El Chapo can be extradited to the US to stand trial

Photograph: Yuri Cortez/AFP/Getty Images A Mexican federal judge has ruled that Joaquín “El Chapo” Guzmán can be extradited to face trial in the US, days after he was moved to a prison on the border with Texas. Mexico’s foreign ministry now has 20 days to approve the extradition, a political decision which Guzmán’s lawyers described as a foregone conclusion. “We’re convinced the (foreign ministry) will concede this request for extradition,” José Refugio Rodriguez, one of the…

Rousseff impeachment vote annulled, throwing Brazil legislature into chaos

Brazil’s political landscape has been thrown deeper into chaos after the interim speaker of the country’s lower house announced the annulment of last month’s impeachment vote against Dilma Rousseff. The surprise move – which was immediately challenged by senior figures in the senate – provides a new twist in the country’s ongoing political drama that would stretch the credibility of a House of Cards plot. Waldir Maranhão, who took over as acting speaker last week, said a new congressional vote would be needed as a result of procedural flaws in the earlier session on 17 April that dealt Rousseff a…

Ryan: I’ll step down as convention chairman if Trump asks

The Hill

Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) says he’s willing to relinquish his duties as chairman of the Republican National Convention in July if Donald Trump requests it. “He’s the nominee. I’ll do whatever he wants with respect to the convention,” Ryan said during an interview with the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel on Monday. The willingness to hand over the convention position comes ahead of Ryan’s Capitol Hill meeting this Thursday with Trump and Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus. Ryan last week said that he’s not ready to support Trump, a break from other top GOP leaders like Priebus and Senate Majority Leader…

Election analyst flips 11 states toward Democrats due to Trump

The nonpartisan Cook Political Report has shifted 11 states on its election scorecard toward Democrats since Donald Trump became the presumptive Republican presidential nominee. “This has been an exceedingly unpredictable year,” the analyst said. “Although we remain convinced that Hillary Clinton is very vulnerable and would probably lose to most other Republicans, Donald Trump’s historic unpopularity with wide swaths of the electorate — women, millennials, independents and Latinos — make him the initial November underdog.” Colorado, Florida, Pennsylvania, Virginia and Wisconsin were all shifted from toss-up states to leaning Democratic. The “solid Republican” states Missouri and Indiana were downgraded to…

Russia’s Mariinsky Theatre staged a surprise concert in the amphitheatre of the Syrian city of Palmyra on Thursday, in what looked like an attempt by the Kremlin to win hearts and minds and remind the world of its role in the city’s recapture. The concert, held just over a month after Russian air strikes helped push Islamic State militants out of Palmyra, saw Valery Gergiev, a close associate of President Vladimir Putin, conduct the Mariinsky orchestra. Sergei Roldugin, a cellist friend of Putin’s named in the Panama Paper leaks as owning a network of offshore firms that have handled billions…

Ryan fans GOP civil war over Donald Trump

The Hill

Getty Images By Scott Wong and Mike Lillis – 05/05/16 08:06 PM EDT   Paul Ryan on Thursday pressed presumptive nominee Donald Trump to do more to unify the party. But the Speaker’s latest public break with Trump has started tearing Republicans apart. Members of the #NeverTrump movement and Trump’s biggest critics on Capitol Hill cheered Ryan’s remarks on CNN that he could not in good conscience endorse or support the bombastic New York businessman at this time. Ryan’s “proving that he’s an honest and courageous leader and not just another politician who quietly falls in line,” vulnerable Rep. Carlos…

Former Republican presidents will not endorse Trump

BBC

Former US presidents George H W Bush and George W Bush will not endorse Donald Trump’s candidacy for president, aides have told local media. This marks a first for the 91-year-old former president Bush, who had endorsed Republicans in the past five elections. Republican politicians are struggling to define their support, or lack thereof, for Donald Trump. Mr Trump’s remaining opponents dropped out earlier this week leaving him as the presumptive Republican nominee. Both Bush men had previously campaigned this year for former Florida Governor Jeb Bush, who exited the race in February. They had each supported past Republican presidential…

Breast cancer: Scientists hail ‘milestone’ genetic find

SPL

Scientists say they now have a near-perfect picture of the genetic events that cause breast cancer. The study, published in Nature, has been described as a “milestone” moment that could help unlock new ways of treating and preventing the disease. The largest study of its kind unpicked practically all the errors that cause healthy breast tissue to go rogue. Cancer Research UK said the findings were an important stepping-stone to new drugs for treating cancer. To understand the causes of the disease, scientists have to understand what goes wrong in our DNA that makes healthy tissue turn cancerous. The international…
