Two top House Democrats are asking FBI Director Christopher Wray to open a criminal investigation into Postmaster General Louis DeJoy, accusing him of slowing the mail and disrupting USPS operations in an attempt to help President Donald Trump win re-election.


“There is overwhelming evidence that Postmaster DeJoy and the Board of Governors have hindered the passage of mail,” say Members of Congress Hakeem Jeffries (D-NY) and Ted Lieu (D-CA) in a letter to the FBI Director, as The Hill reports. “If their intent in doing so was to affect mail-in balloting or was motivated by personal financial reasons, then they likely committed crimes.”
