A very long and powerful week has nearly come to a close in Washington. Senators reached a deal Friday to delay a floor vote on the Supreme Court nomination to allow for a one-week FBI investigation into allegations of sexual assault by the nominee.
Earlier in the week, the Supreme Court pick’s accuser, Christine Blasey Ford, testified in the Senate, followed by testimony from Brett Kavanaugh.
Also, the House left town Friday until after the midterm elections. They’re expected back in town on Tuesday, Nov. 13. Before leaving, they passed several appropriations bills and a stopgap funding measure to keep the government funded as the next fiscal year begins on Monday.
Here’s the entire week in photos:
