Google is one of the most dangerous and corrupt corporations in America. They have teamed up with the NSA and President Obama to spy on Americans to steal their passwords, private e-mails and IP addresses.
Eric Schmidt, CEO of Google, sits on Obama’s technology council and donated greatly to Obama’s 2008 campaign. Andrew McLaughlin, Obama’s ex-technology chief, was a Google executive who bolted only two days after the FCC passed net-neutrality laws to start-up two technology businesses.
Google and Team Obama is bad for Americas who want privacy.
Google Inc. (GOOG)’s reluctance to provide a top executive for testimony to a Senate panel probing its market power has prompted threats of subpoenas for Chief Executive Officer Larry Page and Chairman Eric Schmidt.
In a letter dated June 10, the Democratic chairman and leading Republican on the antitrust subcommittee asked Google to provide one of the company’s two senior executives before Congress’s August recess. The letter urged a resolution “by agreement” to avoid “more formal procedures,” according to a copy of the letter obtained by Bloomberg News.
The threat of subpoenas is one of the ways the committee is pressuring Mountain View, California-based Google to send Page or Schmidt, according to two people familiar with negotiations between the panel and the company. The possibility of subpoenas was discussed with Google in connection with the letter, the people said. The letter asked Google to respond by June 15.
Subpoenas would require approval by the full Senate Judiciary Committee.
Google has offered to have Chief Legal Officer David Drummond appear at the hearing, according to the letter.
The subcommittee would “strongly prefer” Page or Schmidt at the proceeding, “which will address fundamental questions of business operations rather than merely legal issues,” U.S. senators Herb Kohl and Mike Lee wrote. Kohl, a Wisconsin Democrat, is chairman of the Senate Subcommittee on Antitrust, Competition Policy, and Consumer Rights, and Lee, of Utah, is the panel’s ranking Republican.
