It's been a heavy week for demonstrations on Supreme Court rulings and the death penalty, plus explosive testimony in the public hearings on the Jan. 6 Capitol attack. And Ketanji Brown Jackson is sworn in as the first Black woman on the high court, among the highlights of the week of June 27, 2022, in Washington.
