Lawmakers overthrew Rep. American Jim Jordan at Wednesday’s antitrust hearing while asking Google about allegations of anti-conservation prejudice and interrupting a colleague.
During the hearing, lawmakers asked the CEO of Amazon, Facebook, Google, and Apple about allegations of anti-competitive behavior. But Jordan and others have used their time to ask about other concerns, including moderating political content.
Jordan has scoured Google̵7;s Sundar Pichai on whether the company is helping Joe Biden, the alleged Democratic nominee, who defeated President Donald Trump in the November presidential election.
After Jordan’s time was up, the next legislator to ask questions, Rep. Mary Gay Scanlon, took a headache in Jordan and told technology executives that she “would turn your attention to antitrust law instead of serious conspiracy theories.”
As Jordan stopped Scanlon, Committee Chairman David Cicilline and other lawmakers in the chamber stopped at the Ohio congressman. Rep. Jamie Raskin repeatedly shouted “Put on your mask!” before the interrogation resumed.
