Tareq and Michaele Salahi, arrived on Capitol Hill in Washington Wednesday to testify to the Homeland Security Committee following their now infamous November 24th party crash at the White House.
But if anyone was hoping to pick up a few tips on how to crash like the best they were disappointed as the Salahis were remaining mum, invoking their Fifth Amendment right against self-incrimination and refusing to answer the House committee’s questions about their uninvited appearance at the White House event.
The event in question was a state dinner for Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh at the White House.
Although the Salahis remained silent throughout, their attorney, Stephen Best, said in an interview prior to the hearing, that the Salahris had believed that they were invited to an arrival ceremony and to the White House receiving line for the dinner.
The White House incident led to an apology from the U.S. Secret Service, and three of it’s officers were placed on administrative leave.
Despite the legal ramifications, the Salaharis have seemed to have enjoyed their new found fame. Obviously ones to seek out the spotlight, it was reported that the couple had once auditioned for The Real Housewives of DC.
