Brazilian President Dilma Rousseff is now facing a formal impeachment trial and immediate suspension.
It's the country's first impeachment in 24 years. The trial could last up to six months, which means proceedings will likely overlap the Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro this summer.
Rousseff has been trying to clear her name ever since she was accused of covering budget gaps by pulling money from state-run banks in an effort to win her 2014 bid for re-election.
