Presidential party crashers, Tareq and Michaele Salahi will be issued subpoenas should the couple no-show for their scheduled appearance before the Committee on Homeland Security tomorrow. (Which is what we’re hearing they’re planning on doing.)

Statement from Chairman Bennie G. Thompson:

“Late this evening, I was informed by the Salahis’ counsel, that their clients, Tareq and Michaele Salahi, may not appear before the Committee tomorrow as requested. The Salahis’ testimony is important to explain how a couple circumvented layers of security at the White House on the evening of a State Dinner without causing alarm. The Committee on Homeland Security must understand the full scope of what went so terribly wrong on Tuesday night to ensure that security gaps are sealed. This can only be achieved by hearing both sides of the matter. If the Salahis are absent from tomorrow’s hearing, the Committee is prepared to move forward with subpoenas to compel their appearance.”
