Brazil's President Dilma Rousseff reacts during a launch ceremony of Agricultural and Livestock Plan for 2016/2017, at the Planalto Palace in BrasiliaBy Maria Carolina Marcello BRASILIA (Reuters) - Brazil's President Rousseff vowed on Friday to resist her removal from office until the end, as a Senate committee met to vote on whether the leftist leader should be put on trial in the full chamber for breaking budget laws. The impeachment process is expected to lead to Rousseff's suspension from office next week, pending a trial that could last six months, during which Vice President Michel Temer will replace her as acting president. Only five of the 21 members of the upper house committee have said they will vote against sending Rousseff for trial, meaning her opponents comfortably have the majority they need to recommend the full Senate vote on Wednesday to try her.
