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 initially announced plans for a press conference on Friday but ultimately left the Capitol without addressing reporters.
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.
