IAP Congratulates Kanter on Committee Approval for DOJ Antitrust Chief

October 28, 2021

WASHINGTON — Mike Davis, Founder and President of the Internet Accountability Project, issued the following statement congratulating Jonathan Kanter, the nominee to lead the Department of Justice’s Antitrust Division, after his nomination was voted favorably out of the Senate Judiciary Committee today.

“President Biden has so far gotten just about everything wrong during his presidency. But he made an excellent choice in Jonathan Kanter to lead the Justice Department’s Antitrust Division. That his nomination was reported almost unanimously out of committee speaks not only to his outstanding qualifications but the increasingly unanimous view in Congress that we must break up Big Tech for antitrust violations. At today’s meeting, senators spoke out against Big Tech’s monopolistic practices and the need to end the era of antitrust amnesty. The Senate should swiftly consider and confirm Kanter so he can get to work on behalf of the American people immediately.”

In August, IAP wrote to the Senate Judiciary Committee urging support for Kanter’s nomination. The full letter can be found here. Earlier in October, IAP endorsed Kanter. 

IAP is a nonprofit conservative advocacy group that holds Big Tech accountable for engaging in egregious business practices like snooping, spying, political bias against conservatives, employee abuses and anticompetitive conduct. Davis previously served as Chief Counsel for Nominations to Chairman Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) on the United States Senate Committee on the Judiciary and led the Senate confirmation of Justice Brett Kavanaugh and a record number of circuit court judges.
