During Monday's House Oversight Committee hearing on the dramatic slowdowns of the U.S. Postal Service under the leadership of Postmaster General Louis DeJoy, a major donor to Donald Trump who continues to have tight relationships to the Trump campaign, Republicans worked two contradictory claims.

The first claim is that DeJoy is a major expert in logistics and that's why he was appointed as postmaster general — not because he was useful to the Trump campaign's efforts to sabotage mail-in voting.

The second claim is that Democrats are being unreasonable in expecting that DeJoy, this supposed expert on the mechanics of delivering stuff, should make sure the mail arrives on time, as it generally did before he was hired.
