UPDATED: Salahis in court in Warren County, Va., today. Tareq forced to lose the watch off his wrist to settle unpaid bill from landscaper. The couple left court to find a ticket on their car, reports our colleague James Hohmann.
Happy Friday, everyone! So many important things to cover today:
Obama's top aides -- echoing former president George W. Bush and other past Oval Office occupants -- say the idea of sending the woman in charge of White House parties to a congressional committee runs counter to years of history and to the separation of powers built into the Constitution.
It's an argument that some scholars found to be a stretch. "It doesn't even pass the laugh test, to be quite blunt about it," said Mark Rozell, a public policy professor at George Mason University and author of a new book on executive privilege. "This definitely goes against the president's own pledge for a more open administration, and to move beyond the secrecy practices of the Bush era."
