House Judiciary Committee asks Jeff Bezos to testify about whether Amazon misled Congress

The Democratic-led committee threatened to subpoena Bezos if he does not comply.

Amazon’s stock fell after the announcement.

Seven bipartisan members of the committee said in a letter to Bezos that a recent Wall Street Journal report on Amazon’s use of third-party seller data appears to show that Amazon may have misled Congress in previous statements.

“If the reporting in the Wall Street Journal article is accurate, then statements Amazon made to the Committee about the company’s business practices appear to be misleading, and possibly criminally false or perjurious,” they wrote.
