A Washington Post expose on Postmaster General Louis DeJoy accused him of pressuring the staff of his company to give money to Republican candidates, which he later reimbursed them for through bonuses.

The accusations against DeJoy are coming from, among others, a human resources executive who claims he had access to payroll records.

“My statement on today’s Washington Post story ‘Louis DeJoy’s rise as GOP fundraiser was powered by contributions from co. workers who were later reimbursed, former employees say.’ It is against the law to directly or indirectly reimburse someone for a political contribution,” wrote North Carolina Attorney General Josh Stein. “Any credible allegations of such actions merit investigation by the appropriate state and federal authorities. Beyond this, it would be inappropriate for me as Attorney General to comment on any specific matter at this time.”

If an investigation discovers wrong-doing, DeJoy will be among 14 Trump aides, donors and advisers to be indicted or imprisoned since he first claimed he would only hire “all the best people.

Published

on

President Donald Trump's website appeared to have been briefly hacked on Tuesday -- one week before the 2020 presidential campaign.

Visitors to the site briefly saw a fake DOJ takedown notice.

"This site was seized," the message read. "The world has had enough of the fake-news spreaded (sic) by President Donald J. Trump."

"It is time to allow the world to know the truth," the message continued.

Published

on

On Tuesday, The New York Times reported that Republicans are frustrated over the blitz of Democratic spending in House races, acknowledging they are likely to see their minority shrink even further.

"Bolstered by an enormous cash-on-hand advantage, a series of critical Republican recruitment failures and a wave of liberal enthusiasm, Democrats have fortified their grip on hard-fought seats won in 2018 that allowed them to seize control of the House," reported Emily Cochrane and Catie Edmondson.
