Gavel Down - Closing out the week in Congress

FBI Director firing dominated the week…

Monday started with Senate testimony from Sally Yates and James Clapper, quickly eclipsed by the firing of FBI Director Comey on Tuesday.

House members were in districts this week, where many held town hall meetings.  Senate held votes on several nominations, including the U.S. Trade Representative, and a failed vote to overturn the Obama-era methane rule.
