Postmaster General Louis DeJoy testified before the Senate for several hours Friday, and a lot of people are saying he committed perjury. Among them, U.S. Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-MA), who says he "flat-out lied."
Louis DeJoy flat-out lied to the Senate today about the changes he’s implemented at the @USPS, refused to cooperate… https://t.co/xzaNziKpTi— Elizabeth Warren (@Elizabeth Warren)1598030578.0
One of apparently several issues: DeJoy's testimony about overtime.
"Postmaster General Louis DeJoy said today during his testimony that he has not cut postal workers' overtime," MSNBC reports. "But an internal USPS document show how policy changes prohibit 'extra' or 'late' trips and mandating that carriers 'return on time.'"
Senator Warren is not the only one accusing DeJoy of lying. Take a look:

DeJoy says he never tried to “eliminate” or “curtail” overtime for post office employees. Perjury? Watch. https://t.co/K9k1HLZRPg— MeidasTouch.com (@MeidasTouch.com)1598018096.0
