Pressure mounts as national bar association votes for impeachment.

Brazil President Michel Temer suffered a setback in trying to fend off allegations of corruption and cover-up after the countryís influential bar association voted in favor of his impeachment.

The council of Brazilís Order of Lawyers, or OAB by its Brazilian acronym, voted 25 to 1 in favor of an impeachment hearing for Temer, and will file its request in the lower house of Congress in coming days, it said early on Sunday. The OAB says Temer failed to denounce criminal activities, broke with presidential decorum, and promised undo favors to individuals.
