image for USPS's Louis DeJoy reportedly faces new FBI investigation

The FBI is investigating Postmaster General Louis DeJoy in connection with campaign fundraising activity involving his former business, according to people familiar with the matter and a spokesman for DeJoy.

FBI agents in recent weeks interviewed current and former employees of DeJoy and the business, asking questions about political contributions and company activities, these people said.

Prosecutors also issued a subpoena to DeJoy himself for information, one of the people said.

A spokesperson for the postmaster general denied that DeJoy had broken any laws, but confirmed the existence of the Justice Department's investigation.

DeJoy would then allegedly try to capitalize on the money he illegally directed to GOP candidates and officials, leveraging his influence to advance his own interests.

During a congressional hearing, Rep. Jim Cooper (D-Tenn.) pressed DeJoy about whether he engaged in these campaign-finance irregularities.

On-the-fence members of the board should probably take note of the fact that the postmaster general is facing an FBI investigation. »
