While President Trump began the week with a trip to Asia to establish regional consensus on issues such as trade and North Korea, an immediate crisis had transpired back home: a mass shooting in a church in Sutherland Springs, Texas, killing 26 and injuring more than 20. 

Meanwhile, on Capitol Hill, tax reform was front-and-center. Pressure is mounting on Senate and House Republicans to score a legislative win for the party before next year's midterm elections. But on their signature issue of tax cuts, Republicans have found themselves with major differences between House and Senate proposals.

Democrats racked-up victories in a number of state-wide elections that have some Republicans worried about 2018. 

New developments emerged about Trump officials, including White House adviser Stephen Miller, campaign adviser Carter Page and long-time Trump bodyguard Keith Schiller. Page, Schiller and reportedly Miller have all been called in for questioning by investigators. 

Late in the week, sexual-misconduct allegations were made against Judge Roy Moore, the GOP candidate for the Alabama Senate seat vacated by Attorney General Jeff Sessions. Despite calls from his party for Moore to drop out, the candidate denied the accusations and remains in the race.

This Sunday, Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin will talk with "Face the Nation" host John Dickerson about the White House strategy to get tax reform passed. Will there be a tax cut for the middle class and how do Republicans respond to charges that its plan gives too many benefits to the very rich? And what are Mnuchin's thoughts on CBO projections that the plan eventually adds to the deficit

Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., who labeled tax reform "the issue of our time," will join the program in an exclusive interview to offer his point of view. He'll also weigh-in on the Democratic Party's trajectory heading into 2018.

Sen. Tim Scott, R-South Carolina, will also appear exclusively to discuss taxes as well as lessons his party can learn from their defeat in the Virginia governor's contest.  

To take the country's temperature on the one-year anniversary of Trump's election win, "Face the Nation" headed to Manchester, New Hampshire, a politically-complex city for a focus group. There, John Dickerson talked to Trump voters to learn where the President has lived-up to expectations – and where he has come up short.

As always, our expert political panel will break down the week's endless headlines. The Atlantic Editor-in-Chief Jeffrey Goldberg, Washington Post Congressional Reporter and CBS Contributor Ed O'Keefe and National Editor of Cook Political Report Amy Walter will round out the program.

It's been another busy week, so check your local listings and tune into "Face the Nation" this Sunday.
