House Oversight to investigate postmaster general over accusations of pressuring employees for political donations

The House Oversight Committee will begin an investigation into allegations that Postmaster General Louis DeJoy pressured his employees to make political contributions and then reimbursed those individuals, which is illegal.

Rep. Carolyn Maloney, the chairwoman of the committee, announced the investigation late Monday evening, according to the Washington Post. She called for DeJoy's immediate suspension and claimed that he may have lied under oath last month when he testified in front of the committee.

Maloney claimed that DeJoy, a Republican megadonor who assumed his position as postmaster general in June, faced “criminal exposure” if the allegations are true and “for lying to our committee under oath.”

The announcement of the committee's investigation came a day after the allegations surfaced. According to a report from the Washington Post, DeJoy, during his time running his former business, New Breed Logistics, and his aides would urge subordinates to donate to political causes and then provide them with inflated work bonuses as compensation.

Who and what aren't the House rat gutter trash not investigating?
Anyone else thing  "House Oversite" is an oxymoron.
Any political party that can't cough up anything better than a treacherous brain-damaged old vulture like Joe Biden deserves to die a slow death.
