Photos of the Week (07/28/19)

A pictorial week-in-review posted every Sunday.

1) Former Special Counsel Robert Mueller is sworn in before testifying at a House Judiciary Committee hearing on Capitol Hill in Washington, July 24, 2019. Mueller emphasized he had not exonerated Donald Trump of obstruction of justice, as the president has claimed, but his long-awaited congressional testimony did little to add momentum to any Democratic impeachment ambitions and Trump heartily declared victory. In seven hours of congressional testimony, Mueller accused Trump of not always being truthful, called his support for the 2016 release of stolen Democratic emails “problematic” and said Russia would again try to interfere in the 2020 U.S. elections.

5) President Donald Trump and first lady Melania Trump view a portrait of former Supreme Court Justice John Paul Stevens, who died July 16 at age 99, while paying their respects to Stevens lying in repose at the Supreme Court in Washington, July 22, 2019. Stevens, a Republican appointee who later became an outspoken leader of the liberal wing, was appointed by President Gerald Ford in 1975 and became one of the longest-serving justices in U.S. history before retiring from the court in 2010. He carved out a new role as a critic of some of his former colleagues on issues such as voting rights, campaign finance and the death penalty.  Photo: REUTERS/Jonathan Ernst

19) During the week of July 17, 1955, Walt Disney’s new theme park, named “Disneyland,” opened to the public in Anaheim, California. The 17th, a Sunday, was intended to be an “international press preview,” limited to selected invitees who could ride the attractions, witness the parades, and take part in the televised dedication of the park. However, many counterfeit invitations were distributed, and more than 20,000 eager guests showed up, overwhelming many areas of the 160-acre park. The official public opening came the next day, July 18, and within several weeks, Disney reported that more than 1 million people had visited the site.
