Obama didn’t force FCC to levy net neutrality, review found

Federal Communications Commission Chairman Ajit Pai has been observant for years that the FCC imposed net neutrality manners in 2015 mostly since then-President Barack Obama systematic the elect to do so.

Obama publicly called on the FCC to reclassify broadband providers as “Title II” common carriers and levy the manners in Nov 2014, 3 months before the FCC opinion did just that. But an examination last year by the FCC’s eccentric Inspector General’s (IG) bureau found “no evidence” of crude use of energy by the White House when then-Chairman Tom Wheeler led the net neutrality vote, a newly expelled ask shows.

“We found no justification of secret deals, promises or threats from anyone outward the Commission, nor any justification of any other crude use of energy to change the FCC decision-making process,” the IG’s Aug 2016 report pronounced of Obama’s role in the decision to systematise broadband providers as common carriers and levy net neutrality rules.

Instead, Obama’s statements “were done famous in the record, in full perspective of all,” the report said.


Motherboard published the IG’s report yesterday after receiving it around a Freedom of Information Act request.
