WASHINGTON, Sept 2 (Reuters) - U.S. Postmaster General Louis DeJoy received a subpoena from a congressional panel seeking documents over his decision to implement changes that Democrats said threatened mail deliveries and the 2020 election, the United States Postal Service said.
Representative Carolyn Maloney, a Democrat who chairs the Oversight and Reform Committee, said Monday that DeJoy had not turned over any additional documents after a hearing.
A spokeswoman for Maloney confirmed on Wednesday the subpoena had been served.
A spokesman for the Postal Service said the agency was “surprised and confused by Chairwoman Maloney’s insistence on issuing a subpoena to the Postal Service in the midst of ongoing dialogue with her staff.” (Reporting by David Shepardson Editing by Chris Reese)
