More official details are expected during a briefing set for Tuesday morning, but many of the key details have already appeared in press reports.
Republican Sen Josh Hawley accused Google of keeping power through "illegal means" and called the lawsuit "the most important antitrust case in a generation." Reuters also note that the federal lawsuit marks a rare moment of comity between the Trump Administration and progressive Democrats like Sen Elizabeth Warren, who has called for "swift, aggressive action."
Sen Ted Cruz took to CNBC's Squawk Box earlier to trash Google and its Big Tech peers for abusing their market position and censoring conservative voices.
