Postal Service inspector general to probe changes to USPS made by Trump's postmaster general

CBS News Saturday, 15 August 2020

President Trump has rejected emergency funding efforts, insisting without evidence that mail-in voting would lead to election fraud. The move drew criticism from Democratic lawmakers, and even former President Obama, as Mr. Trump addressed a group of police officers at his New Jersey golf resort Friday evening. Weijia Jiang reports.
