GOP Lawmaker: Google Should Openly Address Position On China

Freshman Sen. Josh Hawley (R-MO) recently sent an open letter to Sundar Pichai, CEO, Google. In this letter, Hawley asked him to explain the firm’s work in China to the public. Due to this letter, Pichai had to witness a week full of meetings in DC that addressed comments made by the U.S. defense leaders in March 2019.

In the Senate Armed Services Committee meeting, which was held in March 2019, General Joseph Dunford stated that Google’s present work in China “is indirectly helping the Chinese military.” The comments distressed lawmakers. Last week, Pichai met Donald Trump, the U.S. President, and Dunford in what seemed to be an effort to ease the tension. Hawley asked the first question that prompted the debate, and after taking note of Google’s meeting, now, he is calling for the firm to openly address its approach in China.
