WASHINGTON, D.C. (LifeSiteNews) — A trove of formerly classified internal documents released as part of a congressional investigation into Big Tech could help lawmakers rein in the power of massive companies including Amazon, Facebook, and Google, reports suggest.
The heavily-redacted internal documents, including emails and confidential company reports, were released this week as part of a bipartisan House Judiciary Committee investigation into Big Tech companies’ alleged illegal anti-competitive activities.

The Committee formally published its 450-page “Investigation of Competition in the Digital Marketplace” report Tuesday, after a 16-month investigation headed by the Antitrust Subcommittee, according to a June 19 press release put out by Democratic U.S. Rep. David Cicilline, chairman of the Subcommittee on Antitrust, Commercial, and Administrative law.
Politico noted the newly released documents could add “ammunition to the push for Congress to toughen antitrust laws,” and “bolster the committee’s claims that the internet giants illegally favor their own products.”
