Re: Testimony of Howard J. Krongard
On Wednesday, November 14, 2007, the full Committee held a hearing entitled, ?Assessing the State Department Inspector General.? At this hearing, Inspector General Howard J. Krongard testified that his brother, Alvin ?Buzzy? Krongard, told him that he was not on the board of Blackwater USA and had no connections to Blackwater. Yesterday, in response to a letter from the Committee, Buzzy Krongard called the Committee staff and said that contrary to Howard Krongard?s testimony, he did tell his brother about his relationship with Blackwater.
The information from Buzzy Krongard raises serious questions about the veracity of Howard Krongard?s testimony before the Committee. To help answer these questions, I expect the Committee to hold a hearing immediately after the Thanksgiving recess at which Howard Krongard and Buzzy Krongard will be invited to testify.
