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.”
