James Biden says his brother, President Joe Biden, was never involved in any of his financial deals. James Biden sat down for an hours-long interview with lawmakers on Wednesday as part of the Republican-led impeachment inquiry into the president. He denied claims that President Biden used his official positions to profit from his family's overseas business ventures.        The Biden administration is cancelling one-point-two billion dollars in student loan debt for more than 150-thousand borrowers. While delivering remarks in California on Wednesday, the president said student loan payments have become too burdensome for millions of Americans. The move is the administration's latest effort at student debt relief after the Supreme Court blocked Biden's broader forgiveness plan last year.        New York Attorney General Letitia James says she'll seize Donald Trump's assets if he doesn't pay up after his civil fraud trial. Last week, a judge ordered the former President to pay nearly 355-million-dollars for conspiring to manipulate his net worth to receive tax and insurance benefits. On Tuesday, James told ABC News if Trump doesn't have the funds to pay the fine, she'll ask the judge to seize his assets instead.        United is set to resume a daily flight from Newark to Tel Aviv. It marks the first time since October, when passenger and cargo services were suspended following the attack by Hamas militants on southern Israel. Initial flights on March 2nd and 4th will stop in Munich, with the goal to begin nonstop daily service starting March 6th. United says it will continue to monitor things in Tel Aviv.        The University of Alabama is pausing its IVF services after a recent ruling by the state's Supreme Court. Earlier this week, the Alabama Supreme Court ruled that frozen embryos are children. The decision comes from a 2022 case, where several couples filed a wrongful death lawsuit after frozen embryos were dropped on the floor by a hospital patient.        The trial in the murder of Tupac Shakur is being delayed. On Tuesday, KTNV reported the trial has been pushed back to November. Dwayne "Keefe D" Davis is accused of organizing the murder of Tupac and recently hired a new lawyer. The new attorney asked the judge for more time to review all of the discovery materials involved with Davis' case.
