Former Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro faced mounting legal pressure on Friday, as police probed his personal finances and communications while a jailed former aide mulled testifying about his role in a Rolex-peddling scheme allegedly masterminded by the ex-president.
On Thursday morning, in a televised congressional probe into the Jan. 8 insurrection, a computer programmer told lawmakers that Bolsonaro last year asked him to tamper with an electronic voting machine to undermine faith in the electoral system.
The hacker, Walter Delgatti, said Bolsonaro told him in August to discuss the idea with Defense Ministry officials and offered to pardon him if he suffered legal consequences. Bolsonaro confirmed the meeting, but denied Delgatti’s accusations.

Bolsonaro reportedly had his aides sell jewelry and watches gifted by foreign governments and give him the proceeds in cash.
On election day 2022, Bolsonaro’s Federal Highway Police set up 549 roadblocks to slow down people coming from the country to vote in towns where Lula was leading in the polls. It’s national director at the time, Sidney Vasques, was just arrested on charges of election tampering. pic.twitter.com/PNSM3aZEBx

Sergio Moro: Você invadiu o dispositivo de 176 pessoas. É isso?
Hacker Walter Delgatti: Sim, mais que isso. Inclusive o seu. Mostrei suas conversas com o Procurador Deltan Dallagnol que são chanceladas até hoje para anular condenação de pessoas inocentes.
