They should file a criminal perjury complaint.
He lied, and he knew that he lied, and I am sure that Donald Trump's stooges in the Department of Justice would love have him jailed:
Amazon is in hot water with a powerful congressional committee interested in the company’s potentially anticompetitive business practices.Seriously, why guys like this are allowed to lie with impunity is beyond me.
In a bipartisan letter sent Friday to Jeff Bezos, the House Judiciary committee demanded that the Amazon CEO explain discrepancies between his own prior statements and recent reporting from The Wall Street Journal. Specifically, the letter addressed Amazon’s apparent practice of diving into its trove of data on products and third-party sellers to come up with its own Amazon-branded competing products.
As the Journal notes, Amazon “has long asserted, including to Congress, that when it makes and sells its own products, it doesn’t use information it collects from the site’s individual third-party sellers—data those sellers view as proprietary.”
In the letter, the House Judiciary Committee accuses Bezos of making “misleading, and possibly criminally false or perjurious” statements to the committee when asked about the practice in the past.
A few days, hell a few hours, sitting in a cell, might do him a world of good, and a few years in jail will do the rest of us a world of good.
