The House Homeland Security Committee, chaired by Rep. Bennie Thompson (D-Miss.), Wednesday voted to authorize subpoenas to force alleged state dinner party crashers Tareq and Michaele Salahi to appear before the panel on Jan. 20. The couple, aspiring reality television stars, declined an invitation to testify last week about how they entered the White House on Nov. 24 for the state dinner honoring the Prime Minister of India even though they were not invited. The couple also face possible criminal charges. A bid by Rep. Peter King (R-NY) to have the panel subpoena White House Social Secretary Desiree Rogers was ruled non-germane. The White House blocked Rogers from testifying, citing separation of powers.
