People very often say things are so because they have reason to believe that they are and/or lack reason to believe they are not. If they end up being wrong, that by itself isn't going to get you a perjury conviction or even a charge. To get at Rasputin, you'd need proof that he believed his statement was false at the time he made it. "Well, it's his company. He must know," isn't going to cut it. You'd need a smoking gun of some kind - proof that he had acknowledged the truth to someone before his testimony or something along those lines.
