House Republicans Walk Out of Congress

Republican members of the House of Representatives walked off the Congress floor Thursday. They left right before a vote on contempt charges against White House Chief of Staff Josh Bolton and former White House Counsel Harriet Miers who have refused to testify in an investigation into the firings of several U.S. Attorneys.

Immediately gathering on the Capitol steps, the Republicans, led by Minority Leader John Boehner (Ohio), criticized House Democrats for introducing the legislation.

Republicans say the time would have been better spent debating controversial domestic surveillance legislation, a version of which just passed in the Senate.
