Bernie Sanders Demands Congress to Return to Deal With Postal Crisis

Sanders comments Sunday on NBC’s “Meet the Press” follow word that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is seriously discussing whether to bring back lawmakers early from recess, according to a Democratic aide.

Senators must pressure Majority Leader Mitch McConnell to do likewise, Sanders said.

Trump’s move to undermine the Postal Service is part of a broader goal of voter suppression, said Sanders, an independent from Vermont. He said Trump, who’s trailing in nationwide and battleground-state polls, believes that lower turnout will help his re-election prospects.

Pelosi, who’s been lobbied by some House Democrats to act, discussed the possibility of returning to Washington soon to take legislative action during a call with other members of leadership Saturday evening, said the aide, who declined to be identified because the information isn’t yet public.
