The president of Brazil moved out of his official residence because of bad 'energy'by Circa News

Michel Temer is the president of Brazil. Presumably, his residence should be among the best his country has to offer.

But Temer moved out recently, claiming he felt bad "energy" and joking about whether ghosts haunted the halls, Brazilian news magazine Veja reports.

He and his wife will live in the vice-presidential residence in the meantime. He was previously vice president.

"I felt something strange there. I wasn't able to sleep right from the first night. The energy wasn't good."

Ironically, "temer" is the Portuguese word for "to fear." 

The move comes amid a far-reaching investigation into corruption in the Brazilian government. Temer's predecessor, Dilma Rousseff, was impeached last year. The current investigation, dubbed Lava Jato ("Car Wash") has led to multiple corruption charges after reports that the state-run oil company, Petrobas, took bribes for contracts.

Temer himself faces charges that he took illegal campaign donations when he and Rousseff ran for office in 2014, The Independent reports.
