Dec 17, 2020 Issues: Consumer Protection and Financial Reform

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

“Today’s filing affirms much of the evidence the Antitrust Subcommittee uncovered during our investigation into Google’s anticompetitive conduct. Like Facebook, Google abused their monopoly power in the marketplace. Like Facebook, they need to be broken up and held accountable.”

“I applaud the 38 attorneys general who joined in this action today. It is a critical and necessary step for restoring competition in the digital marketplace.”
