President of the Chamber of Deputies Cunha observes congressmen, who support the impeachment, demonstrate during a session to review the request for Brazilian President Rousseff's impeachment, at the Chamber of Deputies in BrasiliaBy Leonardo Goy and Anthony Boadle BRASILIA (Reuters) - Brazil's Supreme Court removed the speaker of the lower house of Congress on Thursday on charges of obstructing a corruption investigation, days before an impeachment process that he engineered was expected to oust President Dilma Rousseff. The removal of Eduardo Cunha, a bitter rival of Rousseff and one of Brazil's most divisive public figures, was the latest in a series of political earthquakes in South America's largest country as it struggles with a sweeping corruption scandal and the worst recession in decades. The Supreme Court voted unanimously to approve a request by Brazil's top prosecutor to strip Cunha of his influential post for allegedly intimidating lawmakers and obstructing an investigation into accusations that he held undeclared bank accounts in Switzerland.

The speaker of Brazil's lower house of Congress is the architect of the impeachment drive expected to force Rousseff to step aside from office on Wednesday. Cunha's dramatic setback was not expected to change the momentum against Rousseff.
