In response to a reporter’s question on the subject, he responded, “Yes.” Later, he stated, “Decisions have been made regarding criminal referrals.”
Thompson did not disclose which witnesses the committee is considering for referrals, and he indicated that the committee has not yet finalized its list of individuals to refer.
