Salahis Decline Invitation To Visit Congress

The White House

Congress just found the one spotlight the Salahis would rather stay out of. The AP is reporting that the couple known for crashing the White House state dinner Nov. 24 has decided against accepting the House Homeland Security Committee’s invitation to the hearings being held on the state dinner incident tomorrow.

They may not have a choice, however. FishbowlDC reported that Homeland Security Committee chair Rep. Bernie Thompson (D-MS) said he’d subpoena the Salahis should they decline his invitation to appear.Committee ranking member Rep. Peter King (R-NY) called for the Salahis as well as White House Social Secretary Desiree Rogers to testify at tomorrow’s hearing investigating the events surrounding the Salahis’ entrance into state dinner uninvited. Today, the White House declined to make Rogers available for the hearings, citing separation of powers.
