House Speaker John Boehner to Appear Live on ‘Face The Nation’

[UPDATED] House Speaker John Boehner will sit down live in studio with CBS’ “Face the Nation” on Sunday.

Face the Nation” moderator John Dickerson shared the news on Twitter, writing “We’ll talk to John Boehner, who has just announced he’s leaving the House, this Sunday on @FaceTheNation.”

Boehner announced Friday morning that he would resign from his post on Oct. 30, a move that comes amid great turmoil among the House’s GOP leadership.

Boehner had first announced plans for a press conference on Friday but then reporters were told he would be leaving the Capitol without addressing them. He eventually reconsidered and a conference was scheduled for midday Friday.

The news also comes a day after Boehner became emotional during Pope Francis’ address to Congress on Thursday, a visit that he helped arrange. Cameras caught him weeping as the pontiff spoke.
