More than forty states and the federal government are now suing to break up facebook. us authorities announced the groundbreaking lawsuits just yesterday. Here's new york. Attorney general letitia james by using its vast troves of data and money facebook has squashed or hindered what the company perceived as potential threats. They've reduced choices for consumers. They stifled innovation and they degraded privacy protections for millions of americans. These lawsuits could be the most dramatic antitrust action in decades. And not just here in the us but worldwide the world's lydia amman alito covers tech for us lydia. What exactly are. Us authorities alleging yes. Oh carol when we talk about facebook we have to remember. We're talking about this. Three headed giant. They own instagram. That's a photo and video sharing app as well as what's app which is a messaging tool facebook. Acquired these companies over the last decade. And now they've grown to become some of the most popular platforms all over the world all together. They have an estimated three billion users worldwide and federal and state officials in the. Us say that's just too big and that in the process it's abused its power to crush smaller competitors and through these lawsuits. They want to break up the company. They want to force facebook to sell off. What's up and instagram. This isn't the first time the government has gone after big tech. is it. yeah this is actually the second major antitrust action the. Us has taken in october. The department of justice the doj and several states sued google and the accusation. There was that. Google has an illegal monopoly over internet search and online advertising. So the experts say that taken together. These are the most significant anti-trust cases in decades worldwide. Not just in the us liberty as you know. Europe is typically seen as a leader on this issue. How are they viewing. What's going on in the us. Yeah i spoke about this. With thomas vigna. He's a lawyer in brussels. Who's been involved with several high-profile anti-trust cases against tech companies in the us and europe. And he said that. What's ironic here. Is that for several decades now. Some in the us especially on the republican side have been complaining about europe going after these american tech icons and now we have the us government taking four more aggressive approach than churkin's of ever taken and vanessa. That people in his circles in europe are really surprised about this. That many people didn't expect the us to go after companies so aggressively and he said there's also some envy so even though european authorities technically and legally would have the power to go after facebook and other companies to try and break them up. He said they would never actually do that for political reasons. Remind us what have european authorities done on antitrust. So the way they've gone after these companies is through finds just to give you an example. Google alone has gotten more than nine billion dollars in antitrust fines since two thousand seventeen. And that amount to you and me carol might seem huge. But for these tech giants. This is just the cost of doing business and there's agreement that these fines however big they might be. Don't actually change the way these companies behave whereas trying to break up companies like facebook which is what the us is doing. Could actually change some behaviors. Does this mean that.

Don't don't gonna make t shirts. Don't you want to resign? And he's now facing the Manhattan DA charges for falsifying business documents Manafort is and that we covered earlier so the part of that real estate fraud that the Manhattan d is charging Manafort with has to do with falsifying business documents. That's probably the time when he tried to take his PDF and turn it into a word document and change it and convert it back to a PDF and fucked up the formatting because Republicans can't tech and the hits just keep coming this week because we learned in a new court filing Thursday that new York Attorney General Letitia James Tissa, James detailed her case against the Trump foundation lawsuit seeking two point eight million and an order banning the Trump's from operating charity in New York for ten years. Just filing was in response to a submission from the Trump foundation lawyers saying her initial lawsuit was flimsy and politically motivated. Did even though they settled and shut down. They had reached a deal right because in December. They they reached a deal to close their doors and distribute they had one point seven million dollars in funds and they agreed to distribute other charities under supervision under court supervision, by the way, not like how you how Trump wants to probably distribute it to charity, but the agreement apparently didn't resolve the lawsuit.

And if that weren't enough we found out that New York appeals court rejected Trump's motion to dismiss the defamation suit filed against him by summers Irv OSA, former contestant on the apprentice, she said he groped her. He called her a liar. She sued him for calling her a liar. He filed a motion to dismiss because he's above state law court says, no, you're not. So he's got to go now forward with this lawsuit. I wonder how Trump keeps track of all of his lawsuits. I was just thinking that today. That. Murder board. I was just going to say, yeah, that's a that's a weird Lisa. Frank Brander binder trapper keeper. Yeah. It was making me think too. If that sets a precedent for states being able to indict or not indict just move forward with the case. And if the federal government won't indict him, then maybe the state government will. Yeah. And they did actually use the precedent of Paula Jones versus Clinton because she sued him. Right. And that was I think a federal civil suit..
