William Barr, U.S. Attorney General, says that he is hoping to have Justice Department investigations of the big tech platforms completed by next year. The major four tech companies, Facebook, Google, Amazon, and Apple, have been lightning rods for regulator probes this year.
William Barr told the Wall Street Journal CEO Council, “We started in earnest in July. It’s been moving very quickly. We’re talking very broadly with people and getting a lot of input from people in the industry and experts and so forth.”
