Democratic California Rep. Anna Eshoo called out TikTok CEO Shou Zi Chew on Thursday for claiming he has not seen evidence showing the Chinese government has access to American users’ data.
Chew was testifying before the House Committee on Energy and Commerce amid growing pressure for TikTok’s Chinese parent company, ByteDance, to sell the platform.
Chew claimed in his opening statement that TikTok and the Chinese government were not linked. Eshoo called that claim “preposterous.”
