WATCH LIVE: Google CEO Sundar Pichai Testifies Before House Judiciary Committee


In recent months, Silicon Valley’s major players have visited Congress for various hearings on matters related to data gathering. Tuesday, it’s Google CEO Sundar Pichai‘s turn in the hot seat. The Google chief sits before the House Judiciary Committee to offer testimony for a hearing titled: “Transparency and Accountability: Examining Google and its Data Collection, Use and Filtering Practices.”

According to CNN, Pichai will, during his testimony, deny that political bias is part of his company’s modus operandi.

“I lead this company without political bias and work to ensure that our products continue to operate that way,” Pichai will reportedly say. “To do otherwise would go against our core principles and our business interests.”

Pichai’s appearance comes after high-profile Capitol Hill cameos from Facebook chief Mark Zuckerberg and Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey, among others.

The hearing is slated to begin at 10:00 a.m. ET. Watch above, via Fox News.
