Former President George H.W. Bush has arrived at the U.S. Capitol, where he will lie in state in the rotunda until Wednesday morning. Vice President Mike Pence, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and House Speaker Paul Ryan all delivered eulogies during a Monday afternoon service in memory of the 41st president.

The latest: President Trump and first lady Melania Trump went to the Capitol later Monday evening to pay respects to Bush.

What they're saying:

"He showed us that how we live is as important as what we achieve. His life was a hymn of honor. His legacy is grace perfected. His memory will belong to glory."
— Speaker of the House Paul Ryan
"A steady hand, staying the course — thats what George Bush gave us for decades."
— Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell
"President Bush was a great leader who made a great difference in the life of this nation. But he was also just a good man, who was devoted to his wife, his family, and his friends."
— Vice President Mike Pence

What’s next: Bush's memorial service will take place at the National Cathedral at 11 a.m. ET on Wednesday. He will also lie in repose at St. Martin's Episcopal Church in his hometown of Houston Wednesday evening to Thursday morning. A second memorial service will then be held at St. Martin's Episcopal Church at 11 a.m. ET. Bush will then be buried at the George H.W. Bush Presidential Library in College Station, Texas.

Sen. Mitt Romney (R-Utah) on Saturday tweeted a scathing response to President Trump's Friday night commutation of former associate Roger Stone's prison sentence, calling the move "[u]nprecedented, historic corruption."

Why it matters: Romney has emerged as the party's most prominent Trump critic. He sent shockwaves through Washington after announcing he would vote to convict Trump in the impeachment trial — becoming the only Senate Republican to break ranks and vote for the president's removal from office. Now he is the first major GOP lawmaker to condemn Trump's Friday night call regarding Stone.

We're losing the war on the coronavirus

By any standard, no matter how you look at it, the U.S. is losing its war against the coronavirus.

Why it matters: The pandemic is not an abstraction, and it is not something that’s simmering in the background. It is an ongoing emergency ravaging nearly the entire country, with a loss of life equivalent to a Sept. 11 every three days — for four months and counting.
