Senator Warren and Other Lawmakers Ask FTC to Block Amazon’s iRobot Deal



A group of lawmakers led by Democratic U.S. Senator Elizabeth Warren is asking the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) to reject Inc’s $1.7 billion deal to buy Roomba vacuum maker iRobot Corp, Axios reported on Thursday, Sept. 29 citing a letter.

The FTC last week had asked Amazon and iRobot for more information on the e-commerce giant’s buyout offer, which was announced in August.
