After avoiding press interviews all week, president-elect Jair Bolsonaro admitted to having a "problem ahead" regarding an investigation involving a former aide of his son, Senator Flavio Bolsonaro (PSL-RJ).

During a live transmission on social media on Wednesday (12th), Bolsonaro denied that he and his son were also targets of the same investigation. "If something is wrong, either with me, with my son, or with his aide, we should pay for it. We can't let anyone off the hook. I am open to anyone who wants to ask a question on this subject," he said.

Although he said he was available for clarification, this week Bolsonaro broke with his habit of talking to reporters between his scheduled meetings and appointments.
