Schumer Renews Call For Chairman Johnson To Hold Hearing With DeJoy And Duncan

August 17, 2020

Washington, D.C.— Senate Democratic Leader Chuck Schumer today released the following statement urging Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee Chairman Ron Johnson to hold a hearing in his committee as soon as possible with Postmaster General Louis DeJoy and USPS Board of Governors Chairman Robert Duncan after DeJoy agreed to testify before the House Committee on Oversight and Reform early next week:

“It is disappointing that Chairman Ron Johnson would rather spend time pushing Russian propaganda instead of holding a hearing on the damaging operational changes at the Postal Service that adversely affect America’s veterans, seniors, and so many other people. The Senate must also hold Postmaster General DeJoy accountable for his role in undermining one of America’s most important and sacred public institutions.”
