U.S. Postmaster General Louis DeJoy has reportedly started to remove mail sorting machines from Post Offices across the country.
The process of removing those machines has stoked fears that President Donald Trump and his allies in the executive branch are intentionally sabotaging mail operations in order to diminish the capability of the U.S. Postal Service (USPS) to sort and deliver mail-in ballots in a timely fashion for the 2020 general election.
Tampering with the mail and federal elections are crimes no matter who does it,” federal criminal defense attorney Tor Ekeland told Law&Crime. “Just because you run the bank doesn’t mean you get to steal the money. This reeks of mail and election fraud–the scheme to defraud using the removal of mail sorting machines without reason as a means to inhibit mail in voting. These are felonies and should be investigated and prosecuted appropriately.”
Trump and his postal pimp should be thrown in jail, right now, for interfering with the accurate and timely distribution of the US Mail. It is a criminal offense. Just because you think you’re the emperor doesn’t make you one.
