Senators subpoenaed former Yahoo CEO Marissa Mayer to compel her to testify on the 2013 security breach that affected 3 billion Yahoo users, The Hill first reported. Mayer's team had initially declined to make her available to appear before the Senate Commerce Committee at a hearing on Wednesday, November 8. In response to the subpoena, Mayer told the committee she would appear.

Why it matters: Mayer isn't the only former exec in the Senators' cross-hairs. Also slated to testify is former Equifax CEO Richard Smith, as well as the company's interim CEO Paulino Barros, about its recent data breach affecting approximately 145 million people. Karen Zacharia, deputy general counsel and chief privacy officer for Verizon Communications, which now owns Yahoo, will also testify.

Tune in: You can watch the hearing live Wednesday at 10 am ET here.

The Justice Department and 11 states Tuesday filed an antitrust lawsuit against Google, accusing the company of using anticompetitive tactics to illegally monopolize the online search and search advertising markets.

Why it matters: The long-awaited suit is Washington's first major blow against the tech giants that many on both the right and left argue have grown too large and powerful. Still, this is just step one in what could be a lengthy and messy court battle.
