The White House has scheduled a last-minute Congressional briefing on Libya for Friday afternoon, Congressional aides confirmed. White House aides sent notice late Friday morning of the bipartisan, bicameral invitation for the 2 p.m. meeting to discuss Libya. The meeting is Members-only and was expected to last an hour. If lawmakers are unable to attend in person, there will be a call-in option.

Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) will call into the meeting, according to a spokesman.

The meeting comes on the heels of the Obama administration’s decision to hold a classified Congressional briefing Wednesday on Libya. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton, Secretary of Defense Robert Gates, Joint Chiefs of Staff Chairman Adm. Michael Mullen and National Intelligence Director James Clapper are among the Obama administration officials slated to address Members of Congress.
