Urgent: House now debating “rule” for contempt for Lois Lerner/special counsel for IRS
The House of Representatives is now debating the “rule” which handles the parameters for bringing the contempt of Congress resolution and a call for a special counsel to probe the IRS.
At this point, it’s not accurate to say they’re considering those resolutions. But they are talking about the issue and we can dip in or pull sound.
Debating and approving the rule is needed first before getting to the actual underlying resolutions.
The actual debate on the contempt citation will come later this afternoon. The special counsel issue will come to the floor tomorrow.
