(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. That was unpleasant news to the Democrat chairing the panel, who vowed quick action against Tareq and Michaele Salahi. “If the Salahis are absent from tomorrow’s hearing,” Rep. Bennie Thompson tells the AP, “the committee is prepared to move forward with subpoenas to compel their appearance.”
