(Newser) – President Obama isn't all that interested in a one-on-one conversation with BP's Tony Hayward, but Congress is. The CEO famous for his gaffes is scheduled to testify June 17 before one of the House committees investigating the oil spill, reports the Hill. Hayward will face Bart Stupak's Energy and Commerce Subcommittee, which asked him to bring along a BP employee who can answer the technical stuff, notes Politico.
