Eduardo Bolsonaro Offered Help for Blogger Leave Brazil

In messages from June 2020, the deputy asks Allan dos Santos for information. The blogger is being investigated and moved to the US


Messages intercepted by the Federal Police show that federal deputy Eduardo Bolsonaro (PSL-SP) offered help to blogger Allan dos Santos, investigated by the Supreme Court, to leave Brazil in June 2020.

The owner of the Terça Livre website is the subject of two inquiries about fake news. He left the country the following month.

In the dialogues, Jair Bolsonaro's son asks for information on the passport of Santos and his family and asks him what he needs. The blogger says that only his document is valid and cites the president's meeting with Donald Trump, then at the White House.

At the time, Brazilians were restricted from entering the United States due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Sought, deputy Eduardo Bolsonaro did not respond to the report.

Santos, who now lives in the US, said his friendship with the deputy was not illegal.

"The new thing for Folha is to gossip about private messages between two friends, where one was a federal police officer and tells the other the status of the protocol that anyone does," he wrote in a social network.
