Ron Meyer, Jr., of American Majority, claimed on MSNBC to Martin Bashir that reliable sources are saying that Speaker John Boehner will resign his position tonight.
Bashir said he found that hard to believe, to which Meyer replied that he also found it unlikely. Bashir pressed and asked if there was any evidence to back this up or a candidate who is seeking to replace Boehner as speaker. Meyer replied that he thought Rep. Eric Cantor (R-VA) was spearheading this “coup,” but had no evidence to back that up.
“I’m not going to name names, just watch tonight,” Meyer said.
