House committee to subpoena postmaster general for 'withholding' documents from Congress

Source: CNN

A key House committee plans to subpoena Postmaster General Louis DeJoy on Wednesday, over documents its chairwoman said DeJoy "has been withholding from Congress," the committee said Monday.

During DeJoy's testimony last week, the Committee on Oversight and Reform requested documents on the changes made to the postal service that caused widespread delays across the country by August 26. According to a statement from the committee, no documents were produced and two days after the deadline, DeJoy sent a letter to the committee that said, "I trust my August 24 testimony before the Committee on Oversight and Reform clarified any outstanding questions you had."

A committee source said Committee Chairwoman Carolyn Maloney plans to serve the subpoena on Wednesday, 48 hours after sharing it with the Republican members, based on former Chairman Elijah Cummings' agreement to provide time for consultation with the Ranking Member.

The planned subpoena represents an escalation in the ongoing battle between Democrats and DeJoy as the party seeks to ensure access to mail-in voting for as many Americans as possible amid the coronavirus pandemic. Multiple House Democrats have called for the resignation or removal of DeJoy, a major donor to President Donald Trump.

1. Good luck with that.

It seems subpoenas are worthless these days.

4. be honest? Never. Takes hardcore guts to fight a fight against an enemy who will do all they can

and I have yet to see this same level happening from our side. Otherwise the Sgt of Arms would have been sent out to bring witnesses before every house committee.
