White House Dinner Crashers Turn Down Invitation to Testify Before Congress; Subpoena Threatened

Dec 3, 2009  •  Post A Comment

Tareq and Michaele Salahi, who slipped into a White House state dinner uninvited last week, declined a request to testify before Congress today, which is looking into the security breach, the Associated Press reports.

That prompted the threat of a subpoena forcing them to appear from Democratic Rep. Bennie Thompson, chairman of the Homeland Security Committee, which is holding the hearing.

The Salahis publicist, Mahogany Jones, said in a statement that the couple believe "there is nothing further that they can do to assist Congress in its inquiry regarding White House protocol and certain security procedures. They therefore respectfully decline to testify."

  1. Salahis, they are entrepreneurs and in free market economy (real America) Salahi’s can endeavor on any thing. They got in there, – aren’t they GOOD / creative?
    I see only one problem which thanks to Salahis was discovered and may save President’s life! Salahis proved that PRESIDENT HAS NO PROTECTION AND IN REALITY HE IS VERY VORNUABLE.
    Let Salahis off the hook!. They are HEROS. They may save OUR PRESIDENT.
    NOW WHOLE concept / mechanism of PRESIDENT’S SECURITY MUST BE AMENDED! LOOK AT PRESIDENT’S / AMERICA’S SECURITY.
    LOOK AT WARS AMERICA FIGHTS FOR OTHER COUNTRIES IN EXPENSE OF AMERICAN PEOPLE FOR SOOOOOOOOOOO MANY YEARS!
