Apple CEO Tim Cook is on his way to Washington, D.C. to meet with GOP lawmakers who are likely to chair committees overseeing the tech industry.
Cook scheduled meetings with Republican representatives such as Jim Jordan of Ohio, Darrell Issa of California, and Kathy McMorris Rogers of Washington.
The meetings were most likely scheduled weeks, if not months ago. But since the charting, Apple has come under fire from leading conservatives, many of whom have sided with Twitter CEO Elon Musk in his recent spat with Apple.
As noted by Bloomberg, Jordan publicly expressed his support for Elon Musk.
Jordan is also poised to chair the House Judiciary Committee when the Republican Party takes control of the House in 2023. McMorris Rogers is likely to chair the House Energy and Commerce Committee.
They will play a major role in shaping the Republican Party's tech agenda in 2023.
It is not clear what exactly is on the agenda. Cook comes to Washington, D.C. several times a year, even if he is not called to testify about big technology.
