Biden Announces Student Debt Relief For Millions In Swing-State Pitch

Biden Announces Student Debt Relief For Millions In Swing-State Pitch

President Joe Biden

President Biden on Monday announced a large-scale effort to help pay off federal student loans for tens of millions of American borrowers, seeking an election-year boost by returning to a 2020 campaign promise that was blocked by the Supreme Court last year.

Mr. Biden’s new plan would reduce the amount that 25 million borrowers still owe on their undergraduate and graduate loans. It would wipe away the entire amount for more than four million Americans. Altogether, White House officials said, 10 million borrowers would see debt relief of $5,000 or more.

“While a college degree still is a ticket to the middle class, that ticket is becoming much too expensive,” Mr. Biden said during a speech to a small but enthusiastic audience filled with supporters. “Today, too many Americans, especially young people, are saddled with too much debt.”

Fani Willis Case Upended As Prosecutor Offers To Testify Against Her

Fani Willis Case Upended As Prosecutor Offers To Testify Against Her

Fani Willis

The fate of Fani Willis has been called into question once again after a Georgia prosecutor offered to testify against her, claiming another witnesses’ testimony about her relationship with Nathan Wade was wrong.

Last month, Willis, the Fulton County district attorney, gave evidence in a two-day hearing following accusations by former Donald Trump staffer and co-defendant Michael Roman that she was having an affair with Wade, a special prosecutor she hired in the high-profile case. It was also alleged the pair had benefited financially from taxpayers’ money.

Willis and Wade later admitted they had a relationship but denied a conflict of interest. The timeline of their relationship has emerged as a key point of contention, and Roman has said it started earlier than they admitted. Trump’s lawyers examined phone records alleging the pair were in a relationship before the Georgia election-fraud case began. Newsweek contacted Willis via LinkedIn for comment.

One witness in the case was Terrence Bradley, Wade’s former divorce lawyer, who gave evidence attesting that the pair’s relationship timeline was correct.

But in a Monday court filing, Cindi Lee Yeager, a co-chief deputy district attorney for the Cobb County, Georgia, district attorney’s office, said Bradley told her Willis and Wade’s relationship began earlier than they stated. This is much ado about nothing. Fani needs to step down so they can move on.

The filing, by David Shafer, a Trump co-defendant who, like Roman, has argued Willis should be removed from the case, said that Yaeger claimed on Friday that Bradley had in the past told her that Wade and Willis met and started their romantic relationship in 2019 and Willis had told Bradley to keep it quiet.

Eyes On 2024: Black Voters Are Not Sour On  President Biden

Eyes On 2024: Black Voters Are Not Sour On  President Biden

President Joe Biden

Support from Black voters helped President Joe Biden secure the Democratic nomination and the presidency in 2020, but the latest NBC News poll shows Biden’s support among Black voters is waning.  Which are not true.. Trump has 91 indictments and tried to overthrow the government.  ‘How can you forget that.’ Allowing Trump to run for president is outrageous.

“I was concerned about President Biden. What has he done for Black people, who were a big reason for him winning? You hear that noise coming from the other side and you think, ‘It’s the same ol’, same old’: People begging for our votes, but not doing anything for us after they get it,” one Black voter from Ohio told NBC News’ Curtis Bunn. ” We definiteily not voting for Trump.”

Still, some experts told Bunn, voters expressing discontent for Biden aren’t necessarily going to vote for former President Donald Trump if he’s the GOP nominee next year (the latest NBC News poll finds 69% of Black voters backing Biden and 20% backing Trump). Instead, some Black leaders are worried that voters in their communities won’t vote at all.
