Leading Democrat Asks FTC for Another Google Investigation

A top Democrat in Congress is calling on the U.S. government to investigate Google, the latest sign that some of the party's lawmakers are ready to challenge the tech industry after befriending it in the past. In a letter to the Federal Trade Commission dated May 31, Minnesota Rep. Keith Ellison urged the watchdog agency to take a closer look at Google and its parent company, Alphabet, given that European regulators recently found that the search giant harmed its rivals and fined it $2.7 billion.
