On June 12 Patently Apple posted a report titled “House Antitrust Investigators are pressing Apple to confirm by Sunday whether Tim Cook will Testify in the Antitrust Probe.” The report noted that “The letters raise the prospect of subpoenas to force testimony and document production if the companies don’t comply voluntarily.” On June 17 we posted a follow-up report titled “Apple’s Legal Team won’t confirm Tim Cook’s attendance before the Antitrust Committee due to Highly Unusual Requests from the Committee.”

Politico noted that “The email from Apple’s lawyer said the committee appeared “to seek rolling production of materials from current, ongoing investigations that postdate the original request.” The lawyer called the request “highly unusual and burdensome,” and said the company “will not agree to a perpetual rolling production with no end date.”

We’re now learning that Kara Swisher has learned from David N. Cicilline who is chairing the House Judiciary Committee antitrust hearings examining Big Tech’s power, that all four big tech CEO’s will testify in late July. Swisher’s tweet is presented below.

To clarify, Swisher added: “Cicilline, who has become one of the biggest critics of the enormous power tech wields, said that Amazon’s Jeff Bezos, Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg, Google’s Sundar Pichai and Tim Cook of Apple will testify in front of the House Judiciary antitrust subcommittee.”
