Peter and the other congressional Democrats have scheduled a series of public hearings with DeJoy and other officials. The first of these consultations will be held on Thursday, before the Congressional Progressive Caucus. DeJoy will testify before the Senate on August 21 and before the house on August 24 David C.

Although the Supreme Council had asked for the congress, $75 billion dollars to help with their financial losses, Republicans, led by Mnuchin had hesitated to that number. In his statement, presumably Williams Mnuchin “insisted that all the Republican nomination to the Board of Governors and Postal Regulatory Commission come to his office to kiss the ring and receive his blessing before confirmation.” Although Williams has had several officials privately to the concerns expressed before his testimony, he refused to speak publicly until it has not been given the opportunity to do so before the Congress. It ‘s rare that the post often by the public as one of the most popular political party and not the federal government under such a microscope. Part of the reason for its current position is President Trump, who has repeatedly attacked Post, is called a joke, and explained that he, the USPS would finance the first democratic election measures, because that the Agency funds would need to do to deal with an influx of email vote before the election.

But when Obama appointed seven people to fill these positions, according to a 2018 report by the Congressional Research Service, he received no say in the Senate. The opposition came from both sides of the aisle. Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders has put a hold on two nominations, James Miller and Mickey Barnett, who had been on the Board of Governors serve and had chosen to serve another term. Republicans placed in possession of features supported by the Democratic leadership candidates. Warren Gunnels, Sanders’ Staff Director says Miller and Barnett were selected in consultation with the Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, and Sanders turned toward them, because they wanted to privatize against the German post office, and he tried to protect workers. “E ‘to say a total lie and a distortion of reality that Bernie Sanders, one of the strongest defenders of the US Postal Service to Congress, efforts Trump could destroy the mail. Along with the American Union of Postal Workers, AFL -what and the NAACP, Senator Sanders did everything two far-right Republicans, appointed to the post to prevent the Board of Governors, “Gunnels said in a statement. “These two Republicans wanted the postal service, jobs and privatize bar deceleration mail delivery.” McConnell’s office did not respond to requests for comment. By 2016, the Board of Governors except James Bilbray was a member whose term ended in December this year. At that time, Trump Office took place in January 2017, the Board was officially empty, offers a unique opportunity that has quickly taken. Of the six members of the Board is currently serving donated four Republican candidates, including Trump, and has served as officials of previous Republican administrations or political organizations, according to the analysis time for the political contributions and financial information. The other two members, Ron Bloom, a former member of the administration Obama and Donald Moak, given the Democratic members.
