Brazil President Dilma Rousseff took her battle to survive impeachment to the country's Supreme Court, in a last ditch attempt to stay in office a day before the Senate will likely vote to put her on trial for breaking budget laws. Attorney General Eduardo Cardozo, the government's top lawyer, asked the Supreme Court to annul impeachment proceedings arguing they were politically motivated and had no legal basis.
But the leftist leader appeared resigned to leaving the presidency after a Senate vote today that



is expected to suspend her, pending trial. In her office at the modernistic Planalto presidential palace in the capital, Brasilia, aides had already packed up her papers and cleared the shelves. 
Earlier in the day, the acting Speaker of the lower house of Congress, Waldir Maranhao, withdrew his controversial decision to annul last month's impeachment vote in the chamber. That meant Cardozo's appeal to the top court may be the President's best hope of stopping the process from moving forward.
