The biggest story that started off the week was President Donald Trump's first State of the Union address on Tuesday. Trump urged Republicans and Democrats to work toward comprises on immigration. He also touted the record low African-American unemployment rate, which received no reaction from the Congressional Black Caucus. Rep. Joe Kennedy gave the Democratic Party's response and criticized the Trump administration for "targeting" laws that protect all Americans.

Other major headlines of the week included the release of a controversial memo from Rep. Devin Nunes that alleged anti-Trump bias in the FBI, a rare type of lunar eclipse called a "Super Blue Blood Moon" and an Amtrak train carrying lawmakers colliding with a garbage truck on the way to a GOP retreat. 

Click through the slideshow above to see photos from all of these events and more, and be sure to check back next weekend for our selection of the best photography from the week.
