Debt collector DeVos refuses to testify before House Education Committee

Education Secretary Betsy DeVos is refusing to testify before the House Education and Labor Committee about her department’s collection of student loan debt from former Corinthian Colleges students, despite a threat of a subpoena from House Democrats.

“Secretary DeVos has declined to testify and we are reviewing our options, including a subpoena,” a committee aide told POLITICO Thursday night. Committee Chairman Bobby Scott (D-Va.) had given DeVos until Thursday at 6 p.m. to respond to the committee’s request that she appear.
