Brazil’s leadership lurched into another bribery scandal Wednesday, as one of the country’s biggest newspapers accused President Michel Temer of paying a former senate colleague hush money.

Temer’s office released a statement denying that he had authorized any bribes to be paid to imprisoned former house speaker Eduardo Cunha in exchange for his silence regarding a long-running corruption investigation.

According to the report, the information was revealed when the owners of the meat and chicken conglomerate JBS testified before the Supreme Court behind closed doors as part of a massive corruption investigation, dubbed “Operation Car Wash,” which implicates former and current politicians.
