Thirteen members of Congress have written to FCC Chairman Ajit Pai criticizing his” repeated evasive responses to our investigations” and” outright refusal to respond to some of the members of this Committee .” Unsatisfied with the answers or evasions he has offered to date, they reiterate questions related to net neutrality and other issues that they’ve sent over the past months.
” While we appreciate your continued willingness to witnes before our Committee, we are concerned that you have been unable to give complete responses to verbal questions, questions for the record, or oversight letters from our members ,” reads the letter from the House Committee on Energy and Commerce Democrats.
” We take our oversight responsibilities very seriously, and we expect witnesses before the Committee and recipients of our letters to treat their replies the same style ,” they wrote.
These Representatives, led by Frank Pallone Jr( D-NJ) and Mike Doyle( D-CO ), have sent multiple letters of investigation to Pai over run-up to and aftermath of the net neutrality election.
In June, they questioned the nature of and response to the cyberattack on FCC systems during the net neutrality comment period. Pai answered saying that much of what they asked he could not answer because the threat was ” ongoing” and exposing the measures they took would “undermine” them.
