Cicilline Statement on DOJ Filing Suit Against Google

Oct 20, 2020 Issues: Consumer Protection and Financial Reform

PAWTUCKET – House Antitrust Subcommittee Chairman David N. Cicilline (RI-01) issued the following statement today:

“Antitrust enforcement against Google is long overdue. The Subcommittee’s investigation uncovered extensive evidence showing that Google maintained and extended its monopoly to harm competition. It is critical that the Justice Department’s lawsuit focuses on Google’s monopolization of search and search advertising, while also targeting the anticompetitive business practices Google is using to leverage this monopoly into other areas, such as maps, browsers, video, and voice assistants.”
