In a letter to the House Judiciary Committee, Amazon's attorney Robert Kelner said that the company is ready to comply with the requirements of the months-long antitrust inquiry.
"[Amazon is] committed to cooperating with inquiry and will make the appropriate executive available to testify," the letter said. "This includes making Jeff Bezos available to testify at a hearing with the other CEOs this summer."
Questions over Amazon's competitive practices possible
In the hearing, the lawmakers are expected to question Bezos over the company's competitive practices, including the allegation of using third-party seller data to design, price, and promote its in-house products.
However, Amazon has denied this claim, which was reported by The Wall Street Journal, saying that it does not use seller data to compete with them.
Testimony from CEOs essential for the investigation
David Cicilline, chair of the antitrust panel, stated that the CEOs' testimony is "essential to complete this bipartisan investigation into the state of competition in the digital marketplace" and their antitrust subcommittee will use all available tools "to ensure we gather whatever information is necessary."
