The Facts Inside Our Reporter’s Notebook
Speaker Nancy Pelosi on Sunday evening summoned House members from their August vacation to return to Washington to vote on Democrat-backed legislation banning the U.S. Postal Service from implementing changes to operations that could impact mail-in voting in November's election.
Pelosi announced the decision in a letter to colleagues and a tweet.
"The assault by President Trump & his mega-donor Postmaster General Louis DeJoy on the Postal Service threatens lives, livelihood & life of our American democracy," she tweeted. "I am calling on the House to return to vote on Chairwoman Maloney’s 'Delivering for America Act.'"
She added the hashtag "#DontMessWithUSPS."
In her letter to Democratic lawmakers, Pelosi also asked lawmakers to appear at a post office in their district this week to send a message that "Americans should not have to choose between their health and their vote."
