Three weeks into the new Congress, Republican leadership has still not announced the members that will serve on the House Intelligence Committee, hampering the ability of the Democratic majority to start handing out subpoenas and releasing witness testimony related to the Trump-Russia investigation, The Daily Beast reports.

The big picture: Republicans have released their rosters for each of the other House committees, but not to the powerful intelligence panel — which famously devolved into partisan chaos last year under the leadership of Rep. Devin Nunes (R-Calif.). Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Calif.), the new Democratic chair of the committee, has pledged to reopen the Russia probe in light of the indictments of several Trump associates and said Friday that his first order of business would be to hand over all witness transcripts to the Mueller investigation.

As President Biden begins his term in office today, he'll be tasked with leading a country beset with deep, long-term problems.

Why it matters: Though the pandemic has made them worse, existential challenges around inequality, social alienation and political division in the U.S. were in place well before SARS-CoV-2 arrived on American shores. The country's future will depend in large part on whether the choices made over the next four years can flatten the curve of American decline.

Facebook, Instagram transfer accounts, followers to Biden administration

Facebook on Wednesday confirmed that it is transferring the millions of followers of the official Facebook and Instagram White House accounts to the Biden administration.

Details: The accounts for "@POTUS," "@VicePresident" ("@VP" on Instagram) and "@FLOTUS" are having the followers from their personal Pages and accounts be transferred over. It's unclear when that transition process will be complete.
