A top member of the House Oversight Committee sent a letter to Juul last week asking for a vast amount of internal records, the Daily Beast reports.

Details: Rep. Raja Krishnamoorthi asked for details about the company's advertising strategies, its knowledge of its products' health impacts and its business arrangements with Altria.

  • Krishnamoorthi said he's particularly concerned about the rise of youth vaping.

Why it matters: The letter contains "political heft as he can put the weight and resources of the subcommittee he heads behind getting answers from the vaping giant," the Daily Beast writes.
