Google, so long has never played a highly significant role in the popularizing of bitcoins or other cryptocurrencies.
Democratic Rep. Zoe Lofgren questioning, Google CEO, asked him to explain and convince them that there's no conservative bias in Google.

Sundar Pichai Google CEO testified before the House Judiciary Committee this week to address a wide array of concerns including potential anti-conservative bias.
A grilling of Google CEO saw the word "idiot" being searched for more than one million times.
Pichai could have used the opportunity to publicly scrap plans to build a version of his company's core tool, code-named Dragonfly, that would block terms such as "human rights", "Nobel Prize", and "student protest" from search results in China. Maybe next time, our elected officials can learn a little bit about how the internet works so they can actually get something done. Google says the top "how to" search in the US was "how to register to vote", and following the rescue of the soccer team from the cave in Thailand, "scuba diving lessons near me" searches went up by 110%. "There are a number of factors that can lead to slight differences, including time and location, which this study doesn't appear to have controlled for effectively", said a Google spokesperson.
