WASHINGTON -- Congress will subpoena the White House gate-crashers to testify about how they got into a state dinner without an invitation.

Lawmakers on the House Homeland Security Committee voted Wednesday to authorize issuance of subpoenas to compel the attention-hungry couple to answer questions about the Nov. 24 incident.

Tareq and Michaele Salahi have said they will invoke their Fifth Amendment rights to refuse to answer questions.

Secret Service Director Mark Sullivan has said normal security protocols weren't followed and three uniformed Secret Service officers have been placed on administrative leave.

The committee would not accept its top Republican's proposal to subpoena White House social secretary Desiree Rogers.
