DeJoy can only be removed by the Board of Governors (consisting of appointees / supporters) of disgraced, treacherous, thieving, unfaithful, morally reprehensible and delusional insurrectionist – one term former President Trump and the only President to be impeached twice.
While the president can fire other high-ranking executive officials at will, federal law bars the president from terminating the postmaster general under any circumstances. Biden can attempt to oust DeJoy indirectly, but that option is fraught with legal uncertainties, and certain to trigger Republican complaints of norm busting. Unless the president is willing to take a significant legal risk, DeJoy will remain in control for months or years to come.
They board has decided to keep him on.
Trying to force DeJoy out could lead to constitutional chaos.
There are incoming Biden supporters. At the moment, there are not enough Biden supporter votes to remove him.
The three nominees did not signal during their confirmation hearings last week whether they would vote to fire DeJoy—though they’re widely expected to vote in favor of his ouster if confirmed—and said they had not faced any “outside pressure” to do so.
