(Newser) – Saying “there is nothing further that they can do to assist Congress in its inquiry,” the White House party-crashers turned down an invitation to appear before a House committee tomorrow.

Bennie Thompson tells the AP, “the committee is prepared to move forward with subpoenas to compel their appearance.”
