Google CEO Sundar Pichai is going to face Congress for the first time next week, according to The Washington Post.

Pichai will be grilled by the House Judiciary Committee on 5 December, during which he will face questions from Republicans who have unproven beliefs that Google has a liberal bias.

Citing three sources, the Post said the hearing promises to be a "long, wide-ranging review of Google's business practices at a perilous political moment for the tech giant."

As well as accusations of Google's search engine punishing Conservative results, Pichai could also be asked about the firm's plans to return to China. On Tuesday, Google engineers asked management to shut down the project, while Amnesty International is planning global protests over the plans.
