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.

President Trump tweeted on Tuesday that he was considering posting his interview with CBS' "60 Minutes" prior to airtime in order to show "what a FAKE and BIASED interview" it was, following reports that he abruptly ended the interview after 45 minutes of taping.

Why it matters: Trump has escalated his war on the media in the final stretch of his re-election campaign, calling a Reuters reporter a "criminal" this week for not reporting on corruption allegations about Hunter Biden and disparaging CNN as "dumb b*stards" for the network's ongoing coronavirus coverage.
