A powerful storm hit the East Coast on Friday causing wind advisories and debris to fly around the White House and the Capitol Building.
Earlier in the week, the
House canceled votes on Wednesday and Thursday as Rev. Billy Graham, a prominent religious leader and adviser to 12 consecutive U.S. presidents, was lying in honor. He died Feb. 21 at the age of 99.
Also this week, Democratic leaders addressed gun control legislation during news conferences while a bipartisan group of lawmakers met with President Donald Trump on the same topic.
Here's the entire week in photos:
