WATCH: Postmaster General Dejoy says he did not discuss USPS changes with White House officials

Sen. Gary Peters, D-Mich., questioned Postmaster General Louis Dejoy about changes and delays in service that could affect the delivery of mail-in ballots ahead of the 2020 election, as well as whether he had discussed changes with Trump administration or campaign officials, including the president himself, Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin, and chief of staff Mark Meadows. Mnuchin’s possible relationship to Dejoy has recently been questioned by Senate Democrats, but the treasury secretary has denied recruiting or suggesting him for the job. Dejoy said that the suggestion that any changes in service to the USPS would seek “to have any negative impact on the election is an outrageous claim.”
