The week of Oct. 4 as captured by Roll Call's photographers

It may be recess, but the Hill was full of reporters and members of the House committees that began an impeachment inquiry into President Donald Trump. 

Roll Call hit the road to visit Democratic town halls in Pennsylvania and Virginia. In Allentown, Pa., Rep. Susan Wild got questions about whether she’d be working on anything other than impeachment. While Rep. Elaine, Luria of Virginia’s 2nd District — which Trump won in 2016 — faced little opposition over her support of the impeachment probe.
