Former President George H.W. Bush's recently maligned service dog, Sully, was among the mourners who filed into the U.S. Capitol to remember the late president Tuesday afternoon.

They were joined by former Secretary of State Colin Powell, who led the U.S. military during the 1991 Gulf War, as well as USA generals from that campaign against Iraq.

Although Mr Bush's funeral services are suffused with the pomp afforded to United States presidents, by his choice they will not include a formal funeral procession through downtown Washington.

The Bush family has assured Trump that eulogies at Wednesday's funeral will avoid any criticism of him, The Washington Post reported.
