Tech executives have disputed those claims, with Pichai saying in his written testimony that he runs Google “without political bias and work to ensure that our products continue to operate that way.”

He said he believes the tech companies are engaged in “an effort to limit my ability to defend myself, and that’s rather important to me.”

Stone asserted that during a Google News search for his name, an article about his net worth will appear but not one contesting claims by some Democrats that Stone perjured himself during congressional testimony.
