WASHINGTON: Google's top lobbyist in Washington breaks down since the US technology company faces criticism of Capitol Hill on issues like privacy and investment plans in China, the alphabet said Friday.  Former US representative Susan Molinari, who has run the Washington Washington office and its Americas Policy team for nearly seven years, will move to a new job as senior adviser in January, the company said in a statement. Google is seeking a new US policy leader, adding it.

The alphabet faced criticism from Republicans and Democrats to refuse to send the parent company's CEO Larry Page or Google CEO Sundar Pichai to a Senate Negotiation in September, where senators left an empty chair next to Twitter's CEO Jack Dorsey and Facebook's top operator.
Pichai in September canceled a trip to Asia to meet with legislators and agreed to witness before Congress later this year.
Google has also met many charges by President Donald Trump and other Republican leaders this year that search results promote content critical to conservative and demeaning leaning news, Google nektar.
Legislators have asked if it would accept China's censorship claim as it is considering re-examining the search engine market there. Last year, Vice President Mike Pence urged Google to leave the Chinese project.
Pichai said on Thursday that the project was "more of an experiment" and pointed out that it is not "something imminent" whether it will launch a search engine in China.
In June, Google Karan Bhatia employed as Global Political Director from General Electric. Bhatia served as Deputy US Trade Representative for former President George W. Bush. The company also called Pablo Chavez, a Microsoft lobbyist and former senior aide to Republican John McCain, as another senior lobbyist in June.
The alphabet said last month it would shut down consumer version of its failed social network Google+ and tighten its data -sharing guidelines after announcing that private profile data of at least 500,000 users could have been exposed to hundreds of external developers.

"Google must be more open to the public and legislators if the company is to maintain or regain trust in the users of its services," said three senior republicans Google in October 11th. They said they were "particularly disappointed" that Google did not reveal the problem by hearing impaired two weeks earlier.
Google approved in 2012 to pay a $ 22.5 million civil penalty to settle the Federal Trade Commission prosecutor that it was incorrect for users of Apple's Safari browser that it would not place tracking of "cookies" or show them targeted ads.
