U.S. Lawmakers Accuses Tiktok Of Providing Misinformation To Congress

On Nov. 22, Cathy McMorris Rodgers, the Republican Leader of the House Energy and Commerce Committee, and James Comer, the Republican Leader of the House Oversight and Reform Committee, sent a joint letter to TikTok. The letter calls for the company to answer whether it has leaked American user data to the CCP and provide a draft of the agreement negotiated with the Biden administration.

Two Republican House Representatives argued that TikTok intentionally provided the House with misleading and inaccurate information, which claims that it does not track the location of its U.S. users. However, extensive evidence shows that TikTok tracks where its users are and contains a huge information security vulnerability, which allows third-party crawlers to quickly access a large amount of personal information stored by the company. In June, a recording involving more than 80 internal meetings of ByteDance, TikTok’s parent company, was disclosed online, revealing that ByteDance’s engineers in Communist China have repeated access to the personal information of TikTok’s U.S. users.
The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) also said earlier this month that the CCP could use TikTok to influence users or control their devices. The U.S. government and Congress would continue to strengthen their control over Communist China’s companies and maintain U.S. national security.
