After Democratic House Speaker Nancy Pelosi announced Sunday she was calling members back from recess to Washington, D.C. early to address the \u0022devastating effects\u0022 of President Donald Trump\u0026#039;s efforts to \u0022sabotage\u0022 the November election by using the United States Postal Service to disenfranchise voters, Democrats in the upper chamber urged GOP Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell to follow suit.During a Monday morning interview with NBC\u0026#039;s \u0022Today,\u0022 Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) discussed the recent problems with the USPS—including the service\u0026#039;s warningto 46 states that \u0022it cannot guarantee all ballots cast by mail for the November election will arrive in time to be counted\u0022 and demands for Postmaster General Louis DeJoy to testify before Congress, which has since been scheduled for next week.\u0022Good for Nancy Pelosi for bringing the House back. I believe that Mitch McConnell needs to bring the Senate back as well. I called for that publicly yesterday,\u0022 Warren said. \u0022People depend on the post office. We\u0026#039;re depending on it for our democracy, for votes, but people also depend on it to get their retirement checks and their Social Security. People depend on it to get medications through the mail.\u0022\u0022This idea that Donald Trump is gonna do everything he can to destroy the post office because he knows he\u0026#039;s losing this election—this is fundamentally wrong,\u0022 added Warren, who has endorsed presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden. \u0022We all see what\u0026#039;s happening here, so I think Nancy is doing exactly the right thing. We\u0026#039;re going to keep up the pressure—put the pressure on Mitch McConnell.\u0022“This is fundamentally wrong.”Watch @craigmelvin’s full interview with @SenWarren about the current post office cutbacks, and where Democrats stand ahead of their national convention. pic.twitter.com/V8E0otJKLx— TODAY (@TODAYshow) August 17, 2020\u0022Speaker Pelosi is doing the right thing,\u0022 Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse (D-R.I.) tweeted early Monday. \u0022Mitch, call the Senate into session so we can protect USPS and our election. Not to mention stranding the country with no [Covid-19] bill because you Republicans can\u0026#039;t figure this out. Come on!\u0022Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) delivered a similar message in a statement Sunday following Pelosi\u0026#039;s announcement that she will reconvene the lower chamber next Saturday for a vote on legislation that would reverse DeJoy\u0026#039;s \u0022damaging changes\u0022 at the Postal Service, which have led to delays and concerns about the coming election.\u0022I call on Leader McConnell to bring the Senate back into session to quickly act on the House\u0026#039;s legislation that will undo the extensive damage Mr. DeJoy has done at the Postal Service so that people can get their paychecks, medicines, and other necessities delivered on time, and to ensure our elections will remain completely free and fair,\u0022 the minority leader said.Schumer was among the senators who joined a Monday letter, led by Warren, to the Postal Service Board of Governors demanding that they fulfill their obligation to act in the public interest and immediately reverse the policy changes put in place by DeJoy, a Republican megadonor.The letter, which accused Trump and DeJoy of sabotaging the USPS to undermine the ability of Americans to participate in the 2020 general election, also signed by Sens. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), Ron Wyden (D-Ore.), Tina Smith (D-Minn.), Gary Peters (D-Mich.), and Amy Klobuchar (D-Minn.).I’m standing with @SenWarren, @SenGaryPeters, @SenSanders, and @SenateDems to demand that the Postal Board of Governors immediately reverse the changes made by Trump megadonor turned Postmaster General, Louis DeJoy, that have degraded and delayed Postal Service operations. pic.twitter.com/vEttNxGDYM— Chuck Schumer (@SenSchumer) August 17, 2020Schumer was joined by a local letter carriers union leader at a U.S. post office in Auburn, New York on Monday. The minority leader declared that \u0022what has been—and continues—to go on with the Postal Service, the undermining and destructive policies that are so clearly intent on upending a system that has worked for generations, has simply got to stop.\u0022\u0022I\u0026#039;m pushing new action here to undo the changes and get DeJoy to back off,\u0022 Schumer said. \u0022Moreover, we will use the letter of the law to call the postmaster for hearings this week while driving legislation to fix the mess he\u0026#039;s purposely made. Bottom-line, we will not stand for the in-your-face slowing down of the mail and the undermining of Americans who depend on medications, VA benefits, paychecks, even food, and we will not allow of this to take place all in an effort to hobble the November election—no way.\u0022The letter and statements from lawmakers on Monday came after Sanders told told NBC\u0026#039;s \u0022Meet the Press\u0022 on Sunday that \u0022what you are witnessing is a president of the United States who is doing everything he can to suppress the vote, make it harder for people to engage in mail-in balloting at a time when people will be putting their lives on the line by having to go out to a polling station and vote.\u0022The senator\u0026#039;s comments came in the midst of the coronavirus pandemic, which has sparked increased demands for wide-scale mail-in voting—calls that have led Trump to not only push for disruptive changes within the USPS but also issue baseless attacks on voting by mail. Sanders added in his interview Sunday: \u0022This is a crisis for American democracy. We have got to act and act now.\u0022As Common Dreams reported earlier Monday, a coalition of advocacy groups is planning nationwide demonstrations calling for DeJoy\u0026#039;s removal and demanding that lawmakers \u0022save the post office\u0022 from Trump. Those events are set to occur as the House votes on legislation that will reportedly incorporate Rep. Carolyn Maloney\u0026#039;s (D-N.Y.) Delivering for America Act.
