Pair who crashed White House party to be subpoenaed

December 10, 2009

WASHINGTONWASHINGTON — - Congress authorized subpoenas Wednesday for the White House gate-crashers to testify about how the couple got into a state dinner without an invitation. Lawmakers on the House Homeland Security Committee voted to compel the attention-hungry couple to answer questions about the Nov. 24 incident. The couple, Tareq and Michaele Salahi, have said they will invoke their Fifth Amendment right to refuse to answer questions. While the committee authorized the Salahi subpoenas, it would not accept its top Republican's plan to subpoena White House social secretary Desiree Rogers.
