Brazil's President Michel Temer lashed out Tuesday against what he described as an out of control judiciary's use of unsubstantiated corruption allegations to destroy reputations.The statement also came ahead of the expected filing of fresh criminal charges against Temer this week.The leaks also come just as chief prosecutor Rodrigo Janot is reportedly preparing to file criminal charges against Temer, possibly for obstruction of justice.In the possible obstruction of justice charge that Temer could face from Janot, the president allegedly also authorized payments of hush money to an imprisoned former PMDB leader to prevent him from testifying.Temer has denied any involvement in corruption or in the alleged payments to the jailed politician.
