George H.W. Bush’s full funeral program

Prominent former lawmakers, including former Senate Majority Leader Republican Bill Frist, were seen at the Capitol as were sitting Supreme Court justices, including Clarence Thomas, who was nominated to the bench by Bush.

And the Trumps visited members of the Bush family at the Blair House presidential guesthouse, where they are staying.

Trump's relations with the Republican establishment have been rocky since his insurgent campaign took him to the party's nomination and then a shock election win in 2016.

Former President George W. Bush will be among those eulogizing his late father on Wednesday, CNN reported Monday, adding that several other former presidents are expected to show up at the funeral.

In a tweet Sunday, Comey referred to those in-court statements and said "this is the closest I can get to public testimony". Comey wrote Sunday on Twitter that he was " grateful for a fair hearing from judge".

Democratic Representative Nancy Pelosi, the incoming House speaker, and Senate Democratic leader Charles (Chuck) Ellis Schumer placed wreaths at the ceremony.

Trump also did not attend the funeral in August of another Republican giant, former senator John McCain. On Monday, his body was brought to the US Capitol rotunda where Bush will lie in state until Wednesday morning, an honor reserved for government officials and military officers. And President Bush was a bipartisan president. America's VetDogs specially matched Sully with Bush to assist with daily activities, and the pup appeared often on Bush's social media accounts, identified as his best friend.

"(Sully) will be working alongside fellow VetDogs facility dogs SGT Dillon and SGT Truman who are there to assist with physical and occupational therapy to wounded soldiers and active duty personnel during their journey to recovery at Walter Reed Bethesda, " the organization wrote on Facebook.

"I think it's night and day", said Sheila Murray, 58, from Stevensville, Maryland, who came with her 14-year-old son, Thomas.

In an invocation opening Monday evening's ceremony, the U.S. House chaplain, the Rev. Patrick J Conroy, praised Bush's commitment to public service, from Navy pilot to congressman, United Nations ambassador, envoy to China and then Central Intelligence Agency director before being elected vice president and then president.
