First Khan, now Kanter? Democrats and Republicans are uniting around Biden’s tech picks

NetChoice, a tech trade group that counts Amazon, Google and Facebook as members, circulated a memo ahead of the hearing accusing Biden of trying to “con Republicans” again.

It’s a reference to Biden’s surprise appointment of Khan as chair of the FTC, shortly after she was confirmed as a commissioner. The thinking goes that by not alerting all lawmakers of his intent to elevate Khan as chair, Biden bamboozled and burned her GOP backers.
