The House’s lead investigator on Wednesday told President Obama’s top health official to revise “false and misleading” testimony before Congress about known security risks to Obamacare’s federal marketplace before its October rollout.

Rep. Darrell Issa, California Republican and chairman of the Committee on Oversight and Government Reform, accused Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius in a 14-page letter of ignoring red flags raised by agency officials and a private contractor before telling Republican lawmakers that no one advised her to delay the system’s launch because of security-related concerns.

Mr. Issa said the secretary should correct the record or face consequences.

 Issa hints at prosecuting Sebelius for ‘false’ Obamacare testimony Empty Darrell Issa warns Kathleen Sebelius she could face perjury charges over Obamacare testimony

Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius could face perjury charges over her congressional testimony on Obamacare, House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chairman Darrell Issa, R-Calif., warned in a letter calling for Sebelius to correct the record.

“Witnesses who purposely give false or misleading testimony during a congressional hearing may be subject to criminal liability under Section 1001 of Title of 18 of the U.S. Code, which prohibits ‘knowingly and willfully’ making materially false statements to Congress,” Issa wrote in a Wednesday letter.

“With that in mind, I write to request that you correct the record and to implore you to be truthful with the American public about matters related to Obamacare going forward."

Issa focused on Sebelius' testimony about launching the healthcare.gov federal exchange website despite the existence of technical problems that marred the Obamacare rollout.
