Trump says USPS chief DeJoy should lose his job if campaign finance allegations are proven

Source: Independent

Donald Trump has said his controversial appointment as US postmaster general should lose his job if allegations of campaign finance violations against him are proved.

Louis DeJoy, a Trump donor and Republican party fundraiser appointed to his role in May this year, pressured employees at his former company into making donations to GOP candidates, it has been claimed.

As owner of New Breed Logistics, a North Carolina-based supply chain firm sold to XPO in 2014, Mr DeJoy often asked workers and managers to make donations to the campaigns of Republicans running for office, several former employees told the Washington Post.

It is alleged that staff who donated to Mr DeJoy's favoured candidates would recieve company bonuses in return, with managers at the firm also expected to participate.

"Louis was a national fundraiser for the Republican party. He asked employees for money. We gave him the money, and then he reciprocated by giving us big bonuses," David Young, a former human resources director who previously had access to New Breed's payroll records, told the Post.

7. It's an easy under-bus-throwing for Trump because he can't fire DeJoy himself.

That has to be done by the USPS board. So Trump isn't on the hook to actually fire him and won't take responsibility if the board does.

10. Trump tries to move to the middle

but throwing a hand-picked accomplice under the bus? Of course losing a job is nothing to these people. Notice he didn't say "prosecute".

11. Michael Cohen said he has no loyalty to anyone but himself !

And once he uses you and you’re no longer useful to him he dumps you and pretends he no longer knows you.

That is what he will do to his cult followers.

19. What if this is all part of larger plan...?

What if a sudden removal of DeJoy throws the USPS into massive chaos.

And what if that resulting"chaos" is the cover Trump needs to enable him to really gum up the voting/election.

23. trump violated campaign finance laws also, so,

He shouldn't have his position either , and should resign. He's illegitimate anyway, and can't do the job, so resign.
