Committee member Jamie Raskin, a Democratic representative from Maryland, addressed Adam Cohen, Google’s director of economic policy, and cited a 2018 Rand Fishkin study alleging that Google accounts for more than 90 percent of U.S. web search volume, and is therefore a “near monopoly.”

“So congratulations on that,” Raskin quipped, and asked whether Google still argues that it is not a monopoly because “competition is just a click away?”

Google’s Cohen countered that Raskin’s statement was too narrow a view, and that consumers use a range of services when they search online.
