Pelosi summons House back to try to block US Postal Service changes

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said she’s calling the lawmakers back to the Capitol to vote on a bill that would block the Trump administration from administering changes to the U.S. Postal Service.

“Alarmingly, across the nation, we see the devastating effects of the President’s campaign to sabotage the election by manipulating the Postal Service to disenfranchise voters,” Pelosi, a California Democrat, said in a statement on Sunday.

“Postmaster General Louis DeJoy, one of the top Trump mega-donors, has proven a complicit crony as he continues to push forward sweeping new operational changes that degrade postal service, delay the mail,” Pelosi said. “And — according to the Postal Service itself — threaten to deny the ability of eligible Americans to cast their votes through the mail in the upcoming elections in a timely fashion.”

Democrats accuse President Trump of removing mail sorting equipment and mailboxes in an effort to squelch mail-in balloting ahead of the November election.
