Politics Breaking News: Egypt to Investigate Morsi for 2011 Jailbreak

by Wochit 1:25 mins

Officials said prosecutors will investigate allegations that Egypt's ousted president escaped from prison during the 2011 revolution with help from the Palestinian militant group Hamas. Chief prosecutor Hesham Barakat has received testimonies that will be the base for an investigation into the jailbreak by Morsi and more than 30 other Muslim Brotherhood leaders. The question of whether Hamas helped them escape amid the chaos surrounding the 2011 uprising that toppled Hosni Mubarak proved a political headache for Morsi during his one-year rule as Egypt's first freely elected president. Critics in the opposition and judiciary have suggested that proof of foreign intervention on Egyptian soil could lead to treason charges. According to a Senate Democratic aide, a potential bipartisan agreement to lower student loan rates would cost the government $22 billion, a number high enough to send negotiators back to the table. The Republican-controlled U.S. House of Representatives defied a White House veto threat and passed a farm bill that expands the taxpayer-subsidized crop insurance system but abandons food stamps for the poor.
