Elected with 76,306 votes in 2018 in the wake of antipetism and bolsonarism, federal deputy Carla Zambelli (PSL-SP) has become a kind of informal government aide in times of crisis and has been at the center of two recent and capital events for the Planalto: Sérgio Moro left the Ministry of Justice and actress Regina Duarte from the Special Secretariat for Culture.

After the exchange of messages with Moro, in which the deputy tried to avoid the ex-judge’s departure and suggested that he would have a guaranteed place in the Supreme Court – a dialogue included in the investigation that investigates whether Bolsonaro tried to interfere in the Federal Police -, Carla Zambelli took on the mission of resolving the crisis with Regina Duarte, of whom she became a friend and advisor.

Bolsonaro asked the deputy to find an honorable way out for the actress: “See what you can do to make Regina happy. She left Rede Globo and I feel responsible,” said the president, according to her. Carla then decided to schedule a breakfast for Regina with Bolsonaro to appease the mood.

It was Carla Zambelli’s suggestion to offer the actress the command of the Cinematheque. The role of the deputy in the case became the focus of complaints around the president: after the episode, she received messages that advised her to come out of the spotlight. But there were also other support, he says.

Regarding the episode with Moro, Carla said she took the initiative to seek him out after speaking with the head of the Secretariat of Communication, Fabio Wajngarten, and the minister of the Secretariat of Government, Luiz Eduardo Ramos, but claimed that he did not consult Bolsonaro. “If I had spoken directly to the president, I would not have asked Moro to stay. I had my eyes on the Lava Jato judge, but Moro had a disarmament agenda. The president didn’t want him to stay,” said Carla to Estadão. Also according to the deputy, the admiration for the judge of Lava Jato – who was one of the godparents of his wedding in February – was “replaced by disappointment”.

According to the parliamentarian, her rapprochement with Bolsonaro took place after the rupture of also deputy Joice Hasselmann (PSL-SP) with the government. According to Carla Zambelli, Joice to “blocking” contact with Bolsonaro and did intrigue. “Bolsonaro did not speak to me in the campaign for four months because of Joice, who made up lies that I used drugs and had an abortion.”

The two friends were together and attended by movement impeachment Rousseff (PT). Zambelli was Carla who made room for Joice in the group The Streets sound car, which helped design the journalist in the right groups. “I was the one who brought her to the street movements.”

“Bolsonaro never liked Carla Zambelli. He even sent Carla down from an electric trio. He said: ‘Get this woman away from me’. I had nothing to do with it,” said Joice. Estadão. Sought, the advice of the Planalto did not manifest itself.

Carla Zambelli was a project manager at KPMG in São Paulo when she became leader of the Nas Ruas movement. In 2013, she says, her sister, Paula Zambelli, signed a Mackenzie manifesto against Bolsonaro. The president then came to question it. He said to his sister, “Use another surname or I will go to the clash with you.” She says that the request was granted. “My sister is center-left.”
