The conversation about sexual harassment and accountability continued ricocheting through the halls of Congress this week as three prominent legislators – Minnesota Democratic Sen. Al Franken, Michigan Democratic Rep. John Conyers, and Arizona Republican Rep. Trent Franks – announced they would resign in the wake of allegations of misconduct. Meanwhile, both President Trump and the Republican National Committee decided to throw their support behind GOP Senate candidate Roy Moore, himself the target of numerous accusations of sexual harassment and assault.

It was also a big week for policy-making, as lawmakers began combining the House GOP tax bill that passed last month with the Senate tax bill that passed last Saturday, with the aim of putting legislation on President Trump's desk by the end of the year. The House and Senate also approved a two-week spending bill that will stave off, at least temporarily, a government shutdown.

Meanwhile, the Trump-Russia investigation continued churning out developments – like the news that Donald Trump Jr. received an email in September 2016 offering access to hacked Democratic Party data, or the claim from one of President Trump's lawyers that the president couldn't be prosecuted for obstruction of justice.

Across the sea, violent protests sprung up in the Holy City and the West Bank this week after Mr. Trump announced that the U.S. would recognize Jerusalem as Israel's capital. The move made good on one of Mr. Trump's campaign promises, but it also reversed decades of policy that aimed to balance the interests of Palestinians and Israelis in the region.

The U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations, Nikki Haley, will join "Face the Nation" this week to answer questions about Trump's decision to move the capital and whether or not it will affect the Middle East peace process. We'll also ask her about the administration's posture on handling North Korea and other adversaries across the globe.

Sen. Susan Collins, R-Maine, will also join the broadcast this weekend. We'll get her take on, among other things, the status of her party's tax bill, the ongoing Trump-Russia investigations, the Alabama Senate race and the broader conversation about sexual misconduct.

We'll also talk with Sen. Dick Durbin, D-Illinois. He'll give us his perspective on trying to get an immigration deal by the end of the year and the GOP's tax overhaul efforts.

"Face the Nation" will feature a special foreign relations panel this Sunday with a pair of experts to dissect some recent international flash points. Kori Schake of the Hoover Institute and Michael O'Hanlon of the Brookings Institute will discuss how the Jerusalem move might affect the pursuit of peace in the region, the ongoing tension with North Korea and more. 

As always, we'll have our expert political panel to break down this week's headlines. TIME National Political Correspondent Molly Ball, Washington Post Congressional Reporter and CBS News Contributor Ed O'Keefe, CBS White House and Senior Foreign Affairs Correspondent Margaret Brennan and Hoover Institution Fellow Lanhee Chen will be on the program.
