The antitrust case against Google was a Republican project

The antitrust case against Google was a Republican project

When the Justice Department filed an antitrust lawsuit against Google three years ago this month, it was on my watch. The complaint argued that for many years, Google used anticompetitive tactics to oust competitors and establish monopoly power in the general Internet search and search advertising markets. The Justice Department has claimed that Google accounts for nearly 90% of all general search engine queries in the United States and nearly 95% of queries on mobile devices.

The trial in United States against Google finally started in September. The public is seeing for the first time behind the Google curtain what it really is: a threat to the free market and free speech.
