Sen. John Fetterman, who checked himself into Walter Reed National Military Medical Center earlier this year for treatment for clinical depression, plans to return to Capitol Hill today.
The 53-year-old Democrat was treated for six weeks and has previously said that healthcare “changed his life.”

Fetterman now uses devices that transcribe spoken words in real-time.
