Brazil's former leftist president Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva faced the country's top anti-corruption judge Wednesday in a trial that could doom his bid to return to power in 2018 .Lula, 71, was being grilled by Judge Sergio Moro on charges that he received a bribe in the form of a seaside apartment near Sao Paulo.Moro heads the "Car Wash" graft probe, that has revealed mammoth bribery and embezzlement in Brazil's political establishment, and Lula is his biggest target yet.A fiery orator who rose from shoeshine boy to union leader and founder of the Workers' Party before leading Brazil from 2003-2010, Lula is a polarizing figure in Latin America's biggest country.Even more basic were #BrasilComLula (Brazil with Lula) and #BrasilComMoro (Brazil with Moro).
