    Leslie Seidman, General Electric board director and chair of the company’s audit committee, told CNBC on Thursday that a report from Madoff whistleblower Harry Markopolos accusing GE of fraud is “full of misleading, inaccurate and inflammatory statements.”

    “That report does not reflect the GE that I know,” Seidman said on “Closing Bell.

    GE’s CEO, Larry Culp, also told CNBC that the accusations from Markopolos were false and driven by market manipulation.

    Earlier Thursday, Markopolos released a 175-page report on a website claiming that GE issued fraudulent financial statements to hide the extent of its problems.
