Text size Aa Aa

The US speaker of the House of Representatives, Republican John Boehner, is resigning his position and leaving congress altogether.
It is unknown if he left or was pushed but his departure has been described as “seismic” by the Democrat’s leader Nancy Pelosi. His five years was marked by multiple rebellions from right-wing Republicans.
