On April 12, President Joe Biden said that over 277,000 borrowers in more than 40 states will have $7.4 billion in student loan debt wiped out, 'The Hill' reports.

.

To date, the Biden administration has canceled $153 billion in student loan debt.

.

From day one of my administration, I promised to fight to ensure higher education is a ticket to the middle class, not a barrier to opportunity.

, President Joe Biden, via statement.

I will never stop working to cancel student debt – no matter how many times Republican elected officials try to stop us, President Joe Biden, via statement.

'The Hill' reports that Biden's loan forgiveness has largely been aimed at helping "public service workers, those on IDR plans," .

People who've been defrauded by educational institutions and those with disabilities.

.

Republican Rep.

Virginia Foxx, chair of the House Education Committee, issued a statement in response to Biden's actions.

.

The administration is tone deaf.

There’s no other way to put it, Rep.

Virginia Foxx, chair of the House Education Committee, via statement.

We know that instead of doing its job the administration focused time, energy, and resources on its illegal student loan scheme.

, Rep.

Virginia Foxx, chair of the House Education Committee, via statement.

And that has been frustrating, especially since it has jeopardized the academic journey of millions of students, Rep.

Virginia Foxx, chair of the House Education Committee, via statement.

But what is absolutely maddening is that the administration is STILL not doing its job and instead focusing on its student loan shenanigans.

, Rep.

Virginia Foxx, chair of the House Education Committee, via statement.

White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre said, , “We know what Republicans are going to do; we can’t stop them from that.

But it’s also not going to stop the president from acting and taking action, like he is today.”

Biden Asserts Executive Privilege Over Audio of Interview With Robert Hur

Biden Asserts Executive Privilege , Over Audio of Interview With Robert Hur. In February, Hur's yearlong investigation into whether President Biden mishandled classified documents ended without enough evidence to support criminal charges. In February, Hur's yearlong investigation into whether President Biden mishandled classified documents ended without enough evidence to support criminal charges. House Republicans were provided a transcript of Biden's interview with Hur, but they wanted the audio, which the DOJ denied. As a result, House Republicans were moving to hold Attorney General Merrick Garland in contempt of Congress. On May 16, the Department of Justice told House Republicans that the president asserted executive privilege over audio from his interview with the special counsel. The move protects Garland from criminal exposure as GOP lawmakers seek to hold him accountable. Assistant Attorney General Carlos Uriarte explained the DOJ's actions in a letter. The Attorney General must draw a line that safeguards the Department from improper political influence and protects our principles, our law enforcement work, and the people who carry out that work independently, without fear or favor, Assistant Attorney General Carlos Uriarte, via letter . The Committees seek to hold the Attorney General in contempt not for failing in his duties, but for upholding them, Assistant Attorney General Carlos Uriarte, via letter . With the information you now have, the Committees ought not to proceed with contempt and should instead avoid unnecessary and unwarranted conflict, Assistant Attorney General Carlos Uriarte, via letter . White House Counsel Ed Siskel also wrote a letter supporting the assertion of executive privilege. . The absence of a legitimate need for the audio recordings lays bare your likely goal—to chop them up, distort them, and use them for partisan political purposes, White House Counsel Ed Siskel, via letter

And then if you couple this poll with nearly 100,000 people showing up in Arctic blue New Jersey, this is a disaster for Biden, Ford O’Connell, a Republican strategist, via 'The Hill'. Biden supporters, however, say that polling conducted this far away from election day should be taken with a grain of salt. The only consistency in recent public polls is inconsistency. , Geoff Garin, Biden campaign pollster, via 'The Hill'. These results need to be weighed against the 30-plus polls that show Biden up and gaining — which is exactly why drawing broad conclusions about the race based on results from one poll is a mistake. , Geoff Garin, Biden campaign pollster, via 'The Hill'. The reality is that many voters are not paying close attention to the election and have not started making up their minds — a dynamic also reflected in today’s poll. , Geoff Garin, Biden campaign pollster, via 'The Hill'.
