It’s the TSE’s personal fault if many Brazilians suppose badly of them. And it’s hardly an indication of their first-class work that their fame is ruined.
Till a impartial physique completely investigates this accusation of electoral fraud, evidently the TSE can declare as a lot because it desires.
It has misplaced all credibility for hundreds of thousands upon hundreds of thousands of Brazilians.
They need to face this truth sooner slightly than later if they don’t wish to danger a full-blown civil rebellion with all of the horrible penalties that such a one might entail.

And extra importantly, the Bolsonarists are a substantial motion and unmatched in numbers.
The earlier the best courts (STF and TSE) admit that (too) many Brazilians doubt their authority, rightly or wrongly, the higher this incipient rebellion will go.
Those that suppose they need to put these individuals in jail haven’t understood how democracy works and provoke just one factor: extra outrage and the start of violence.
