President-elect Joe Biden's incoming national security advisor says the Trump administration is not fully cooperating with the Biden transition team. Jake Sullivan tells NPR's Scott Detrow it's been 11 days since the transition was granted a meeting with the Defense Department. Acting Defense Secretary Chris Miller has insisted the Pentagon is fully cooperating at level-beyond-previous transition. But Sullivan says he and another Biden's official have a number of unanswered questions about the massive government computer hack that has been linked to Russia. "What if any systems, whether classified or unclassified, whether directly connected to the Department of Defense or connected to major contractors, have been compromised? What the extent of those compromises and breaches have been? And what steps are being taken into immediate ***?" Sullivan says other departments have provided that sort of information, but not the Pentagon. Scott Detrow, NPR new, Washington.

The Justice Department says it will not bring federal criminal charges against Cleveland police officers involved in the 2014 shooting death of Tamir Rice, a black 12-year-old, who was playing with a pellet gun outside the recreation center. Justice Department officials say the video of the incident was too poor to conclusively determine whether officer willfully broke the law. Today's decision ends the federal probe.

Vice president-elect Kamala Harris and her husband received their first dose of the Covid-19 vaccine today, NPR's Franco Ordonez reports, Harris said she did it publicly to send a message. The vice president-elect received the vaccine at the United Medical Center which serves the largest population of African American residents in southeast Washington DC. Harris lifted up, and then waited for the nurse from medical center administrate the shot in her left arm. Harris told the nurse that she barely felt it before addressing reporters. "Literally this is about saving lives. It's literally about saving lives. I trust the scientists. And it is the scientists who created and approved this vaccine." Harris said she wanted to remind people in under-served communities that they too have trusted sources where they can go to get the vaccines. Franco Ordonez, NPR news.

Colorado governor Jered Polis says the first confirmed US case of the Covid-19 variant originally found in the UK, has been identified in his state. He says a man in his twenties has no travel history in his recovering isolation. British scientists are still studying the mutation and believe it's more contagious than other strain but not more dangerous. And more testing is necessary to ensure current vaccines will protect against it.

For the first time in nearly 2 years paying passengers took a US flight aboard of Boeing 737 Max today. The model is grounded following 2 crashes that killed 346 people. NPR's Dave Mistich reports. The Boeing 737 Max was grounded worldwide in March 2019 after its involvements in 2 fatal crashes in Indonesia and Ethiopia. American Airlines used the plane on its short test flight early this month at Miami International Airport, before boarding passengers on a Tuesday morning flight from Miami heading to New York. The airline has become the first one in US to flight passengers again on the Boeing 737 Max. Last month officials with the Federal Aviation Administration approved changes Boeing made to a flight control system on the plane. Since then airlines in Brazil and Mexico have upgraded dozens of flights with the aircraft. American says it will warn customers when they book whether they will be on the Max in case they're uncomfortable. Dave Mistich, NPR news.

Cardan died in a hospital outside Paris at 98.
