Brazil's Rousseff, in New York, compares impeachment to a coup

NEW YORK (Reuters) - Brazil’s President Dilma Rousseff told reporters in New York the ongoing impeachment process against her has all the characteristics of a coup and said there was no legal basis for her ouster.

Earlier in the day, Rousseff used a softer tone and avoided the word coup at a speech at the United Nations, though she said Brazil’s political crisis was grave.
