Maloney Threatens to Subpoena DeJoy Over Withheld Documents

Billy House, Bloomberg News

(Bloomberg) -- House Oversight and Reform Chairwoman Carolyn Maloney said Monday she intends to subpoena documents from Postmaster General Louis DeJoy that he promised but never delivered.

Maloney notified the committee that the information sought includes materials about plans for removing mail-sorting machines and documents used to determine which collection boxes or processing machines should be removed.

Maloney’s committee has been looking into the causes and impacts of changes at the Postal Services in addition to service delays. DeJoy testified before the House committee Aug. 24 and before the Senate Homeland Security Committee on Aug. 21. He said many of the post office changes were planned before he took the job in June.

The Postal Service has become the center of political clash between Democrats and President Donald Trump. As he trails Democrat Joe Biden in polls, Trump stepped up his attacks on the post office and voting by mail. Democrats have suggested the postal service cutbacks are politically motivated -- something DeJoy has denied.

2. Just Stop With the THREATS!

And just DO it! Slap a subpoena down right now and if he blows it off, send the Sergeant at Arms to arrest his ass.

Damn.

4. A waste of time. Apparently, congressional subpoenas aren't worth the paper they are written on:

8. Bad headline, and I see others jump right on that bad headline (not yours)....

Maloney said "she intends to subpoena documents...", she's not "threatening to subpoena documents".

11. The subpoena is in the mail.

And if actually delivered before the Election will be laughed at, ripped up and thrown in the garbage.
