Couple ordered to appear on Capitol Hill Jan. 20
The Congressional committee that oversees the Secret Service voted on Wednesday to subpoena the now infamous gate-crashing couple who dodged White House security to attend President Obama’s first state dinner.
The vote was 26 to 3 in favor of issuing a subpoena to Tareq Salahi and 27 to 2 for his wife, Michaele. Representative Mike Rogers, a Republican of Alabama, switched votes for Ms. Salahi.
But don’t expect any fireworks on Jan. 20, the day the House Homeland Security Committee ordered the Salahis to appear on Capitol Hill. On Tuesday, the couple’s lawyer said they would invoke their Fifth Amendment right against self-incrimination.
