Glenn Kirschner: States Refer Trump & Postmaster General DeJoy for Criminal Investigation over Slowing the Mail

August 16, 2020

Donald Trump and his Postmaster General Louis DeJoy appear to be engaged in a criminal conspiracy to slow down the mail (in a transparent attempt to interfere in our free and fair elections) in violation of the federal law, 18 United States Code section 1703, which makes it a crime to delay or destroy the mail. Of course, Attorney General Bill Barr will not initiate a criminal investigation into Trump or DeJoy, as Barr has abandoned his responsibility to represent the interests of the American people and support and defend the Constitution, in favor of supporting and defending Donald Trump. But the good news is that there have now been two criminal referrals of Trump and DeJoy for potentially violating state law and the voting rights of state citizens. Arizona Secretary of State, Katie Hobbs, has made a criminal referral to the Arizona Attorney General, Mark Brnovich. Additionally, US Congressman Bill Pascrell, Jr. has made a criminal referral of Trump and DeJoy to the Attorney General for the state of New Jersey for possible violations of New Jersey voting laws.
