USPS Communications of Postmaster General Brennan Containing Key Terms

Update, Sept. 23, 2 p.m.

On Aug. 21, 2020, the U.S. Postal Service released nearly 10,000 pages of records to American Oversight in response to a Freedom of Information Act request. On Sept. 17, 2020, after the documents had been posted publicly and had been discussed in multiple news reports, USPS requested that American Oversight remove the file from this website.


Following conversations with USPS, American Oversight has now reposted a copy of the file that includes redactions requested by the agency on a limited number of pages. Pages that relate to issues that were the subject of public reporting — such as the draft press release regarding the plan to mail face masks to every American household — remain un-redacted.

Records from the U.S. Postal Service in response to American Oversight’s request for the communications of Postmaster General Megan Brennan containing key terms related to possible political interference. These records contain communications regarding agency loans, the USPS Board of Governors, and Covid-19.
