House To Subpoena Postmaster Over Withheld Docs

NBC News reports:

House Oversight Chairwoman Carolyn Maloney, D-N.Y., plans to subpoena documents related to mail delays and voting by mail from Postmaster General Louis DeJoy, the congresswoman announced on Monday. The subpoenas come after Maloney says DeJoy has withheld documents from Congress.

Maloney issued her notice of intent to issue the subpoena in a 13-page memo to DeJoy on Monday, which noted that lawmakers have not received requested documents from DeJoy and the United States Postal Service including changes that he had planned to implement at the agency.

But there’s also this news today:

A divided federal appeals court panel dealt a severe blow to the U.S. House of Representatives’ investigative power Monday, ruling that the House can’t go to court to enforce subpoenas because there is no statute giving that chamber the authority to do so.

The 2-1 ruling marked the second time a D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals panel voided a subpoena the House issued last year to Donald McGahn demanding the former White House counsel testify about his dealings with President Donald Trump related to the investigation into alleged ties between the Trump campaign and Russia.
