The House Oversight Committee wants more information from Michigan Gov. Rick Snyder (R) on when he found out about health problems stemming from the Flint drinking water crisis. Earlier Thursday, they had given Snyder until October 25 to address when he first learned of a fatal Legionnaires' disease outbreak. Snyder told the congressional panel under oath in March 2016 that when he became aware of the Legionnaires' cases, he held a news conference the next day, which was January 13. The House Oversight and Government Reform Committee sent Snyder a letter Friday.

But, in testimony from Harvey Hollins in Flint in the criminal case against Nick Lyon the Director of the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services, Hollins testified he told Governor Snyder in December of 2015 on the phone.

"My testimony was truthful and I stand by it", Snyder told the committee in a letter, adding that his office has provided tens of thousands of pages of records to the committee and would continue to cooperate fully.

Lying to Congress is a crime if the false statement was made intentionally and was "material" or significant.

"And as soon as I became aware of it, we held a press conference the next day", the governor testified.

Committee leaders are now asking the governor to clarify by October 25.

"I have specifically reviewed the question and my answer referenced in your letter", Snyder's letter says.

The charges stem from more than 80 cases of Legionnaires' disease and at least 12 deaths that were believed to be linked to the water in Flint after the city switched its source from Lake Huron to the Flint River in April 2014.

"Either Gov. Snyder or one of his top aides is not telling the truth", Kildee said in a statement.
