My take on this is that the issue is *not* which details of his past he has divulged to you and which ones he didn't choose to tell you about. The issue is that you are aware that he has a history of lying and cheating and this makes you uneasy. Now you have discovered a particular detail which you can call him out for hiding from you... I would suggest having a conversation about your *actual* fears instead of chasing around this excuse.
If it's just a matter of you being mad because he didn't fully confess all of his sins to you... I don't know what to tell you. Why is his personal history your business? Is he applying for a job?
