After nearly three decades of democratic stability, Brazil is flirting with fascism. Journalists from the El País newspaper and The Intercept investigate how an anti-corruption operation was misused by an unscrupulous judge as a tool of ideological persecution and how this helped bring the far right and Bolsonaro to power. 'Lawfare' - the use of justice as a weapon against political opponents - is endangering democracy around the world.
