Ali analyzes congressional hearing on threat of TikTok

March 23, 2023 ABC News

Javed Ali, ABC News: "There definitely is a lot of skepticism right now on the Hill, despite the claims from the TikTok CEO about these steps or actions the company has taken to minimize the risk. But I have been listening to the voices of my former organizations, like the Director of the FBI and the Secretary of Homeland Security, these are the voices in the executive branch saying that there is a risk to having TikTok on your phone. And that risk is probably some compromise of the data. And I would also have to think there is some intelligence that they have that suggests that this concern isn't just a political one. As these hearings unfold, I think it's going to get even more contentious in terms of the pushback that Members are going to give the CEO."
