Incoming White House press secretary Jen Psaki said Wednesday it was personally important to President-elect Joe Biden that a bipartisan delegation of congressional leaders join him at church on Inauguration Day morning. Psaki said Biden hopes it will signal “the beginning of a path forward” to national healing and political unity at the outset of his term.
