President Obama moves online today. The commander in chief will participate in his first ever Tumblr Q&A. The microblogging website's founder, David Karp, will host the online chat.

The format for questions will build on the president's memorandum on student loan debt he signed yesterday. The White House is currently allowing people to submit questions on the subject and will select the best ones.

The Senate Armed Services Committee will meet this morning in a closed meeting to discuss the Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl prisoner exchange. Bergdahl was a prisoner of the Taliban for nearly five years and was recently released in exchange for five senior members of the Taliban who were being held at Guantanamo Bay. The controversial swap has drawn criticism from many lawmakers in Washington.

Senate Democrats this morning will dig into the hot topic of the week, student loans. Sens. Elizabeth Warren, D-MA, Chuck Schumer, D-NY, and others are holding a news conference later this morning to discuss the issue.

Warren, a freshman senator from Massachusetts, recently introduced a bill that would allow borrowers to refinance their high interest rates.
