FBI said to be investigating Trump-allied Postmaster General Louis DeJoy

Postmaster General Louis DeJoy was selected to serve in the post about a year ago after having previously acted as a fundraiser for then-President Donald Trump.

According to Mediaite, DeJoy is now facing an FBI investigation into questions about his business career and prior political donations.

“Investigating campaign contributions”

Mediaite’s report pointed to a recent Washington Post article citing allegations by former employees at New Breed Logistics, a company DeJoy owned before it was sold in 2014.

Workers reportedly claimed that they were pressured to attend political functions and make financial contributions to GOP candidates. Those expenses, they alleged, were reimbursed in the form of bonuses.

If the alleged behavior is proven to have occurred, DeJoy might have run afoul of state and federal election laws. Mediaite quoted DeJoy’s spokesperson, Mark Corallo, who admitted that an investigation is underway but denied any wrongdoing on the part of his boss.

“Mr. DeJoy has learned that the Department of Justice is investigating campaign contributions made by employees who worked for him when he was in the private sector,” Corallo said.

Thus far in his service as postmaster general, DeJoy has clashed with Democrats over cost-cutting proposals, though he has remained defiant in the face of partisan criticism.

“I’m not a political appointee”

Earlier this year, DeJoy told members of the House Oversight and Reform Committee that he intends to remain in his current role for the long haul.

“Get used to me,” he told lawmakers in February, according to Politico. “I’m not a political appointee. I’d really appreciate if you’d get that straight.”

Indeed, the postmaster general is not a position appointed directly by the president but rather a board made up of members selected by the president and Senate leaders.

Defending his hard-line stance on postal reforms, DeJoy insisted: “The years of financial stress, underinvestment, unachievable service standards, and lack of operational precision have resulted in a system that does not have adequate resiliency to adjust and adapt to changing circumstances. We’re not out to profit. We’re out to break even.”

Former federal prosecutor Miriam Baer acknowledged that determining whether DeJoy committed perjury during his congressional testimony “is one of the hardest crimes to prove and some would say rightfully,” insisting that officials “don’t want to punish people for answering questions that are themselves imprecise.”
