Senator Hawley Statement on DOJ Antitrust Lawsuit Against Google

Tuesday, October 20, 2020

Today U.S. Senator Josh Hawley (R-Mo.) released the following statement after the Department of Justice announced an antitrust lawsuit against Google:

“Today’s lawsuit is the most important antitrust case in a generation. Google and its fellow Big Tech monopolists exercise unprecedented power over the lives of ordinary Americans, controlling everything from the news we read to the security of our most personal information. And Google in particular has gathered and maintained that power through illegal means. That is why I launched a sweeping antitrust investigation of Google when I was Missouri Attorney General, and that’s why I stand behind the Department of Justice’s actions today. But to be clear – this is just a first step, and I will continue to fight for the legislative solutions needed to end the tyranny of Big Tech.”
