WASHINGTON — The party-crashing Salahis — who are apparently “so yesterday” — are still in the crosshairs of federal authorities.

Ben Friedman, a spokesman U.S. Attorney’s Office in Washington, said Wednesday that the couple is still under investigation and no decision has been made whether to charge them criminally for crashing a White House party on November 24.

“There’s nothing further to report,” Friedman said.

Federal authorities could charge Tareq and Michaele Salahi with criminally trespassing or lying to a federal agent. But there are some observers who believe it could be a tough case to prove, and the government could end up being embarrassed if it loses the case.

Either way, even with a conviction, it’s not likely the couple would serve any jail time.
