(Politico) GOP Rep. Ted Yoho says a group of House Republicans wants to impeach Attorney General Eric Holder — an action not taken by the chamber in nearly 140 years.
Yoho, a Florida freshman who never held elected office before winning his seat in Nov. 2012, told the Gainesville Sun that the group wants to meet with Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) to discuss removing Holder from office.

"It's to get him out of office — impeachment," Yoho said, according to the Gainesville Sun, adding "it will probably be when we get back in [Washington]. It will be before the end of the year. This will go to the speaker and the speaker will decide if it comes up or not."
