 U.S. Representative Mariannette Miller-Meeks (IA-01) issued the below statement following TikTok CEO Shou Chew’s testimony at the House Committee on Energy and Commerce hearing:

“There are serious, bipartisan concerns about TikTok’s affiliation with ByteDance and the Chinese Communist Party, its security measures, and its content moderation. The Committee invited Mr. Chew to have an open and honest dialogue, but unfortunately, we weren’t given sufficient reason to believe his company is doing enough to protect its users,” said Representative Miller-Meeks. “Mr. Chew has a long way to go before any of us are convinced that TikTok isn’t feeding data to the CCP or manipulating content to harm our children.”
