Pichai, who was testifying before the House Judiciary Committee, faced a string of tough questions from Gaetz.“Have you ever launched an investigation into whether political bias is impacting the consumer experience?” asked Gaetz.

Lawyers for Trump's former national security adviser, Michael Flynn, asked a judge Tuesday to spare him prison time, saying he had devoted his career to his country and taken responsibility for an "uncharacteristic error in judgment."
