Warren County Report has confirmed that U.S. Secret Service agents were at Oasis Winery less than one hour ago looking for Tareq and Michaele Salahi to question them about their uninvited appearance at Tuesday’s White House State Dinner.
According to Oasis Winery manager Diane Weiss, two SUV’s were waiting near the entrance gate when Weiss arrived to open the winery at about 11am today for tastings.
Weiss said one SUV was at the entrance and the other was further up the road.
When Weiss arrived, two agents–one male and one female–said they wished to speak with Tareq and Michaele Salahi. Weiss said she told the agents that they did not live there and hadn’t since 2006. The agents asked why they had a mailbox there. Weiss explained that it is an ongoing issue and that they do receive mail and list Oasis Winery as their home address on their driver’s license but actually reside in a house in Linden.
Weiss said the agents were pleasant but in a hurry. “We are not here to arrest the Salahi’s today. It is imperative that we speak with them If they do not sit down with us and talk we will take whatever action necessary,” Weiss quoted the male agent as saying.
Weiss said the agents spoke with Corinne Salahi, Tareq’s mother, before leaving.
Weiss has worked at Oasis since 2007.
