Google settled a major win last week when the Federal Trade Commission announced that after a nearly two-year investigation into the Web giant's business practices the company was absolved of making major changes to its search product.

However, Rep. Darrell Issa (R-Calif.), chairman of the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform, seems to believe there was something fishy about the announcement.

The official announcement was made on January 3, but several news sources, including Bloomberg, Reuters, and Politico, got a hold of the results of the investigation the day before it was supposed to be made public. Technically, it is illegal for the commission to share the results of a probe before being made public. Issa is now calling for an investigation into the news leaks.Congressman Seeks Investigation Over 'Leaked' Google FTC Antitrust Announcement [news.cnet.com]
