Schiff Will Issue Criminal Referral To DOJ Regarding Prince’s Testimony To Congress

April 30, 2019 10:26 a.m.

House Intel Committee chairman Adam Schiff (D-CA) said Tuesday that he will make a criminal referral to the Department of Justice based on Blackwater Founder Erik Prince’s allegedly false testimony before Congress.

“I do believe that there is a very strong evidence that he willingly misled the committee and made false statements to the committee and later today, we will be making a criminal referral to the Justice Department,” Schiff said during a televised interview with the Washington Post. “The evidence is so weighty that the Justice Department needs to consider this.”

Prince told Congress that a meeting in the Seychelles with a Russian banker linked to Russian President Vladimir Putin was by chance, a statement in contradiction to what he told special counsel Robert Mueller’s team.
