The panel specifically overturned the court order that authorized a specialist master or third-party attorney to look through the thousands of documents that were found in Trump’s house to determine what documents should be hidden from investigators. The court held that the judge shouldn’t have intervened in the initial in the first place. Trump’s legal team hasn’t decided whether to appeal the decision before the Supreme Court but is weighing the possibility.
2. Rail strike
It was reported that the Senate this week approved legislation to prevent the possibility of a shutdown for rail after a dire message from President Joe Biden that a strike could trigger economic chaos. The final vote of the Senate was 80-15, and the bill is going to the president’s desk to be approved by the president. If Congress had not acted, the possibility of a strike on rails could have started on the 9th of December, which could have caused shortages of products, spiking prices, and stopping manufacturing. The strike could also have disrupted the commuter rail service for millions of passengers each day and the transportation of a huge number of carloads of agricultural and food products, among others, according to a group of business organizations. Union leaders aren’t pleased with the arrangement negotiated by the White House, arguing it didn’t meet the employees’ demands for paid sick leave.

President Biden’s program to forgive student loans is currently blocked, according to the Supreme Court announced Thursday; however, the justices have agreed to listen to oral arguments in this case later in February, with a decision anticipated in June. The program will provide up to $20,000 in relief from debt to millions of people who are borrowers. However, because of a lengthy list of legal issues, the government halted accepting applications about two weeks ago, and no debt has been canceled to date. Around 26 million people had applied for the program prior to it being shut down. “President Biden will keep fighting against efforts to rob middle-class families of the relief they need and deserve,” White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre stated in an announcement she praised the decision of the Supreme Court to consider the case.
