President Trump said Monday that he would support an investigation into the allegations made against Postmaster General Louis DeJoy. Mr Trump said he would support DeJoy’s removal if it is shown that he is behaving illegally.
The Washington Post reported on Sunday that five people who worked for New Breed Logistics, where DeJoy served as chairman and CEO for 31 years, were “asked to write checks and participate in fundraisers” by DeJoy’s aides or the CEO himself at his Greensboro mansion . The Post quoted two employees as saying that DeJoy would then increase employees’ bonuses “to pay the cost of their contributions,”
The president said he didn’t know much about history. When asked if he would assist an investigation into the allegations, he said “sure” and added that he thought DeJoy was an honest man. If he was found to have done something illegal, the president said he would assist his removal.
“Yes, if something can be proven that he did something wrong, always,” said the president. “Always. They looked at me for four years, they didn’t find anything. Four years, think about it. Four years. From the day I came down the escalator, I was examined by Sleaze. And they found nothing. You.” haven’t found anything. A friend of mine said you must be the most innocent and honorable man who ever held the office of President. “
