U.S. Tech Groups Say FTC’s Khan Misled Congress Over Digital Trade Regs

When the White House unveiled the IPEF framework in 2022, it planned to include “standards on cross-border data flows and data localization.”

More than a year later, U.S. Trade Representative (USTR) Katherine Tai pulled that section of the agreement because of issues with the trade framework. She also removed the United States from World Trade Organization e-commerce negotiations.

The move angered U.S. trade groups, who promptly pointed the finger at Tai ally Federal Trade Commission Chair Lina Khan.

They now say Khan was less than candid about the matter before a congressional committee.

Does anyone tell the truth in this administration when testifying before Congress? Looks like the House needs to ready another contempt citation for a Biden appointee -- not that Merrick Garland will do anything about it.

Good to see our friend Taylor Millard's work! Read it all.
