House asks DoJ to probe Amazon's obstruction of Congress - report

The United States House Judiciary Committee has asked the Department of Justice (DoJ) to investigate whether Amazon.com Inc. intentionally left out the information requested by the body's Antitrust Subcommittee that was looking into its competitive practices, The Wall Street Journal reported on Wednesday, citing people familiar with the matter and the letter it reviewed.

"The letter alleges that the refusal was an attempt to cover up what it calls a lie that the company told lawmakers about its treatment of outside sellers on its platform," the outlet explained.

The Seattle-based giant previously denied that the company or its executives provided the committee with false information about its practices regarding the individual seller data.
