I noticed that myself this morning. You don’t suppose Nancy Pelosi would stoop to playing games with the timing of an allegedly “urgent” hearing for partisan gain, do you?
Why is Congress scheduled to meet (on Post Office) next Monday, during the Republican Convention, rather than now, while the Dems are having their Convention. They are always playing games. GET TOUGH REPUBLICANS!!!

I’m surprised Trump’s not trying to block Postmaster General Louis DeJoy from testifying on executive-privilege grounds. Maybe he realized it would look even shadier than usual for him to silence a deputy from whom Congress is seeking information in light of the out-and-out paranoia about the USPS that’s spreading right now. There’s nothing DeJoy will tell House Democrats that’s more damning than the perception of a conspiracy of silence would be if Trump ordered him not to show.
