John Oliver has a pretty good breakdown of the Mueller report. Trump dodging some of the worst charges comes down to two things, incompetence among staff who were willing to dialogue with Russia and failed, disobedience from staff who were ordered to fire Mueller, etc, and refused to carry out the order. I think he's also right that the smart Republican move was continually talking about collusion, which is not a legal term and therefore not something the investigation was ever going to find. But I am looking forward to Mueller's testimony, especially after his letter to Barr complaining that the AG misrepresented the report.

It's also indisputable at this point that Russia was behind a campaign of disinformation that benefitted Trump. That should be concerning to all of us, regardless of who we voted for. I'm happy enough to see Kirstjen Nielsen out of Homeland Security, but she was at least concerned about similar interference in 2020.

Anyway, here's a solid article on student loan forgiveness.
Whenever an old white guy like me reminds you that “I worked my way through college,” remind them that in the 1981-1982 academic year, the average in-state tuition and fees at a four-year public college or university was just $909 … back when the federal minimum wage was $3.35 an hour. That means I could have paid for my entire freshman year tuition and fees with less than seven weeks of full-time minimum-wage work at just about any shitty summer job. But over the past four decades, average public university tuition and fees have increased more than 11-fold, to $10,230 a year, while the federal minimum wage of $7.25 an hour has barely doubled.

FBI-CIA Dispute Erupts Over Whether Comey Or Brennan Pushed (Totally False) Steele Dossier

BREAKING: A high-level source tells me it was Brennan who insisted that the unverified and fake Steele dossier be included in the Intelligence Report... Brennan should be asked to testify under oath in Congress ASAP.

Most of Memo 80, Memo 94-96, Memo 111-113, Memo 134-136 were corroborated by Mueller. Graham's comment about nothing but news reports corroborating things didn't age well.

WTF?! Former FBI Director James Comey started out as a Communist like CIA Director John Brennan in the 1970s: "I’d moved from Communist to whatever I am now," Comey told New York Magazine in 2003

It's been funny seeing the conservative hatred for Comey. His antics two weeks before the 2016 election helped Trump roll into office as much as anything did.
