The attorney general for Missouri, Josh Hawley, on Monday said he has issued an investigative subpoena to Google to determine if it has violated Missouri's main consumer protection law and its antitrust laws.

He said, however, that Google has "strong privacy protections in place for our users" and that it continues "to operate in a highly competitive and dynamic environment".

Hawley noted Google has access to an estimated 70 percent of all card transactions in the United States, as well as online users' location, device information, cookie data, online queries and website history. He expressed concern over the accuracy of the company's privacy policy, allegations it misappropriated content from rivals and claims it demoted competitors' websites in search results. In a statement, Hawley said he also hopes to glean whether the practice.

In June, the European Union issued Google a record $2.7 billion antitrust fine.

The South China Sea dispute will be one of the major issues at the East Asia Summit in The Philippines this week. Duterte also thanked Bolkiah for hosting a number of Filipinos in Brunei and treating them as their own.

In September, Yelp wrote a letter to the Federal Trade Commission that Google had violated a 2012 settlement by allegedly scraping photos from online reviews for its own search results.

Hawley's office argues that federal regulators were wrong not to sue Google and that inaction left an opening for a potential state suit.

Missouri's attorney general says his office will investigate Google for potential violations of the state's antitrust and consumer-protection laws. Hawley said the Federal Trade Commission under former President Barack Obama "did not take any enforcement action against Google, did not press this forward and has essentially given them a free pass".
