Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin releases a Postal Task Force report that calls for dramatically reorganizing the United States Post Office. In the months that follow, he sets out to find Trump loyalists for the USPS board of governors.
Throughout 2019 and 2020, Mnuchin meets privately on multiple occasions with Robert Duncan, a Republican National Committee chairman added to the USPS board in August — just four months after Mnuchin was put in charge to reform the postal service.
He also meets with John Barger, “a California lawyer and financial investment adviser who was recommended to the Treasury secretary by a mutual associate.” Mnuchin recommends that Donald Trump appoints Barger to the board of governors, and he does in the summer of 2019.
In February 2020, Mnuchin meets behind the scenes with Duncan and Barger, secretly putting them in charge of finding a new postmaster general who will carry out his and Trump’s orders.
Donald Trump was not the first criminal elected to public office, and he won’t be the last. It’s up to US to hold them accountable.
