Did Brazil's Planning Minister Plot Against Rousseff?
Brazil's planning minister resigned from office on Monday after a recording of him was made public.
The recording appears to show Romero Juca plotting the impeachment of now-suspended President Dilma Rousseff. He reportedly was talking with a former oil company official about how to stop a corruption investigation.
Juca denies the allegations. He claimed that the words he said were taken out of context.
On Monday, the planning minister said he would temporarily resign from the acting government. He had been in office less than two weeks.
The Brazilian newspaper Folha published a partial transcript of the recording on Monday. The Reuters news agency reports that the paper said the recording was made "secretly."
In it, Juca and the former oil company official, Sergio Machado, discuss a government investigation of the state-operated oil company Petrobras. Both men have been named in the investigation.
In the transcript, Juca said "We have to change the government so the bleeding is stopped."
Machado reportedly said that, "The easiest solution is to put Michel in." That appears to refer to Vice President Michel Temer, Brazil's acting president during the suspension of Rousseff.
Juca is reported to have said he was working with the country's justices, who have the final word on impeachment.
The recording was apparently made in March before the Senate voted to impeach Rousseff.
Rousseff's supporters say the recording shows that she is the victim of an attempt to overthrow the government.
The Brazilian Senate voted to place Rousseff on trial earlier this month. She is charged with using record-keeping tricks to hide Brazil's budget deficit when she campaigned for reelection in 2014.
She currently is suspended for up to 180 days while her trial takes place.

录音的内容为罗梅罗·茹卡（Romero Juca）“密谋弹劾”现已停职的巴西总统罗塞夫 。据悉，录音来源于他与一位前石油高管的通话记录，两人商议如何阻止贪腐案件的调查 。
茹卡否认了这些指控 。他声称自己所说的话被断章取义 。
周一，这位计划部长表示暂时从代理政府辞职 。他新上任还不到两周 。
周一，巴西《圣保罗报》公布了录音的部分文本 。路透社报道称，该报声称这份录音是“秘密”录制的 。
录音中，茹卡与前任石油官员塞尔希奥·马查多（Sergio Machado）商议关于政府调查的国营石油公司Petrobras的贪腐案 。两人都被列入了调查范围 。
马查多则表示，“最简单的办法就是让米歇尔取而代之 。”意指扶持在罗塞夫遭停职期间，暂代巴西总统一职的副总统米歇尔·特梅尔（Michel Temer） 。
本月初，巴西参议院投票决定让罗塞夫接受弹劾审讯 。她被指控在2014年竞选连任时非法修改财务账目以掩盖巴西的财政赤字 。
