    Lightbulb Verify

    "He gave some records to the department."
    "He verified some records to the department."

    Is it possible "to verify information to someone" in the same sense as "to give information to someone"?

    No. They are completely different verbs.

    Thank you for your reply, Rover!

    Would it be possible "to verify something to someone" in the same sense as "to PROVE something to someone"?
