Less than two months after the Justice Department initiated a wide-ranging antitrust review of big tech companies, 50 U.S. states and territories, led by Texas, Monday announced their own investigation into Google's "potential monopolistic behavior."
The announcement closely followed one from a separate group of states Friday that disclosed an investigation into Facebook's market dominance. The two probes widen the antitrust scrutiny of big tech companies beyond sweeping federal and congressional investigations and enforcement action by European regulators.
State attorneys general will launch one of the largest bipartisan, multi-state antitrust investigations into Facebook and Google on Monday.
State attorneys general spanning across dozens of states will announce an antitrust investigation into Google and Facebook, and other technology companies at the U.S. Supreme Court at 2:00 p.m. ET Monday.

48 AG's, California and Alabama AG's are not part of this, yet
I understand California but have no clue why Alabama is not part of this

It's also coming out right now that they can prove that Google manipulated their search engine results to throw a couple million votes towards the Democrats in the 2018 midterms.
Maybe someone should look into that before 2020...

I'm sticking with Edge. Because lately Microsoft strikes me as the least evil
of the bunch.
And I use DuckDuckGo as my search engine. Google can kiss my @ss.
