White House staff gets partial blame for party crashers

White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs cited "separation of powers" in explaining why White House Social Secretary Desiree Rogers won't talk to a congressional committee investigating how a Virginia couple crashed a state dinner last week. Meanwhile, a White House memo says that the White House staff did not do "everything we could have" to prevent the interlopers from being admitted to the event.
