As Washington braced itself after Attorney General William P. Barr released a summary of the report from special counsel Robert S. Mueller III, Washington stayed busy.
But Roll Call’s photographers did catch some moments of pause:
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez was spotted petting a puppy, and a protester from Clean Water Action was caught in the hearing to confirm David Bernhardt for Interior secretary wearing a swamp monster mask.
