(CNN) A federal judge in eastern Washington state said that President Donald Trump and Postmaster Louis DeJoy “are involved in a politically motivated attack on the efficiency of the Postal Service,” and will issue a nationwide order blocking some recent changes that slowed down mail and could threaten mail-in voting.

Judge Stanley Bastian said during a court hearing Thursday he will issue the order blocking the changes made by the US Postal Service

A coalition of Democratic state attorneys general sued USPS last month, claiming that DeJoy broke the law when he implemented policy changes that disrupted mail delivery across the country. USPS rejects these claims and DeJoy says he isn’t trying to sabotage the election.

The policy changes at the Postal Service created “a substantial possibility” that “voters may be disenfranchised,” Bastian said during the hearing, adding that “harm has already taken place.” ”
