Jeff Bezos will finally be grilled by Congress

  • A month and a half after US Congressional members called on Jeff Bezos to testify in an antitrust probe, Amazon has said its founder and CEO would be willing to appear at a hearing — under certain conditions.
  • In the case of Amazon, lawmakers have expressed concerns about the data Amazon uses to create its own brands that end up competing against small businesses that sell on Amazon’s platform.
  • The original call for Bezos to testify came in the wake of a Wall Street Journal investigation in April that revealed Amazon employees have at times accessed data from individual marketplace sellers to help decide which products Amazon would create and sell under its private-label brands.
  • Beyond the antitrust investigations in Europe and by US Congress, the Federal Trade Commission has also been probing Amazon on similar antitrust matters, including how it competes with its merchants, and whether Amazon Prime unfairly undercuts competitors on price.

Officers involved in the death of Elijah McClain reassigned for safety reasons

  • The death of Elijah McClain is now being investigated following a social media outcry after the fatal August incident while he was in police custody.
  • Aurora officers Nathan Woodyard and Jason Rosenblatt were reassigned on June 13, and officer Randy Roedema a week later, a police spokeswoman said.
  • The officers' safety was a primary reason for the move as various police and city employees have received complaints and threats recently, said Faith Goodrich, spokeswoman for the Aurora Police Department.
  • An officer placed McClain in a carotid hold, or chokehold, and he briefly lost consciousness, according to an overview of the incident provided by police.
  • The officers in the case were placed on administrative leave following McClain's death, but were later reinstated after prosecutors declined to file charges against them.

  • But others say that the prospect of a Trump probe is so significant that the Biden administration would want to go outside the typical law enforcement channels either by appointing a new special counsel, empanelling a wider commission of outside legal experts or even removing the federal government entirely from the picture in deference to state investigators.
