BREAKING: Postmaster general agrees to testify before House panel

Amid scrutiny and criticism from Democrats, Postmaster General Louis DeJoy has agreed to testify before the House Oversight and reform Committee.

The testimony is scheduled to take place next Monday and he will be asked about the cost-cutting measures at the U.S. Postal Service that Democrats say may result in mail in ballots not being delivered in time.

House Oversight and Reform Committee Chairwoman Carolyn Maloney (D-NY) said “The American people want their mail, medicines, and mail-in ballots delivered in a timely way.”

She added “and they certainly do not want drastic changes and delays in the midst of a global pandemic just months before the election.”
