Palmer Supports Referral of CSB Chairman to DOJ for Criminal Prosecution

Location: Washington, DC

Congressman Gary Palmer, a member of the Oversight and Government Reform Committee, supports the decision of the Committee to refer former Chemical Safety Board (CSB) Chairman Rafael Moure-Eraso to the U.S. Attorney General for criminal prosecution. This criminal referral follows hearings in June 2014 and March 2015 where in his sworn testimony, Mr. Moure-Eraso may have violated federal statutes that prohibit lying under oath and making false statements to Congress.

"Oversight is an important part of Congress's job, and dishonesty on behalf of any Administrative branch employee makes it significantly harder to do oversight effectively. I have serious concerns about the veracity of Mr. Moure-Eraso's testimony before the committee, and it is appropriate that we notify the Attorney General about this issue," said Rep. Palmer.
