Google CEO to meet with GOP lawmakers

Google CEO Sundar Pichai will meet privately with Republican legislators after Google refused to send top executives to a congressional hearing in September, according to CNBC.

Google will address questions regarding its business in China and allegations that its search results are politically biased.

"Google has a lot of questions to answer about reports of bias in its search results, violations of user privacy, anticompetitive behavior, and business dealings with repressive regimes like China," said House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-Texas. said.

"I look forward to meeting with members on both sides of the aisle, answering a wide range of questions and explaining our approach," Mr. Pichai said in an emailed statement. "These meetings will continue Google's long history of engaging with Congress, including testifying seven times to Congress this year."
