Pascrell tells Biden to fire USPS leadership for ‘silence and complicity’ during Trump attempt to subvert election

Rep. Bill Pascrell, Jr. (D-Paterson) today called on President Joe Biden to fire the entire U.S. Postal Service Board of Governors for their “silence and complicity” in attempts by former President Donald Trump and Postmaster General Louis DeJoy to “subvert vote-by-mail elections and destroy the Post Office.”

“After several years of unprecedented sabotage, the United States Postal Service is teetering on the brink of collapse. Through the devastating arson of the Trump regime, the USPS Board of Governors sat silent,” Pascrell said.  “Their dereliction cannot now be forgotten.”

DeJoy, a Republican fundraiser named by Trump as the first partisan Postmaster General since the early 1970s, remains in his post.

According to Pascrell, the President has the authority to remove the Board of Governors “for cause.”

Last year, Pascrell filed a complaint with New Jersey Attorney General Gurbir Grewal seeking a criminal probe against Trump and DeJoy.  The congressman alleges that the two were conspiring to subvert the election.

“Nominate a new slate of leaders to begin the hard work of rebuilding our Postal Service for the next century,” Pascrell told Biden.
