American International GroupChief Executive Edward Liddy insists his troubled company is not trying to hide anything from Congress, as Rep. Elijah Cummings has charged.
"We had a meeting set up last Thursday with the Congressman," Liddy told CNBC in an interview. "I got a letter on Tuesday asking for more information. We simply couldn't provide the information in time for a meeting on Thursday."
Congressman Cummings' office disputed Liddy's account of the timing of the request, saying letters were sent to AIG on December 5 and December 9 requesting the information. A letter concerning the matter was sent last week to the chairman of the Oversight Committee, but was not addressed to Liddy or AIG.
