President Jair Bolsonaro said on Tuesday (29) that he regrets the mounting deaths in Brazil-474 recorded in 24 hours-but said there is nothing he can do. It already has the largest number of infections in all of Latin America with 79,685 total confirmed cases and more than 5,500 deaths.

Bolsonaro announced his decision to revoke the appointment Wednesday in the official gazette. The selection comes amid investigations into alleged wrongdoing by the president's sons. He said he was also well within the law if he wanted to replace the leader of the federal police. He has run the Brazilian Intelligence Agency since July.

The Portuguese academic said that Mr Moro has paved the way for his candidacy by "destroying the Brazilian economy, destroying the left" and creating the conditions for Mr Bolsonaro, whom he described as a "transitional politician" to be discarded.

Bolsonaro is facing an investigation ordered by another Supreme Court judge following Moro's accusations, to establish whether he committed crimes including obstruction of justice.

Judge de Mello gave federal police 60 days to question the former star minister, who made the surprising allegations after resigning from office. An indictment would have to be approved by the lower house, also known as the Chamber of Deputies. In the event that Bolsonaro were to be removed from office, Vice-President Hamilton Mourao, right, would likely take the helm. What do you want me to do?

"Providing this type of information is not the job of the federal police", Moro said, insisting on independence for investigations.

Bolsonaro defended his pick for federal police chief Sunday with a defiant "So what?"
