Lack of Updates About the Sale of TikTok

In The Verge’s “TikTok Says the Trump Administration Has Forgotten About Trying to Ban It, Would Like to Know What’s Up,” Sam Byford writes the following:

TikTok has filed a petition in a US Court of Appeals calling for a review of actions by the Trump administration’s Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States (CFIUS). The reason, according to the company, is that it hasn’t heard from the committee in weeks about an imminent deadline for parent company ByteDance to sell off US assets over national security concerns. …

‘For a year, TikTok has actively engaged with CFIUS in good faith to address its national security concerns, even as we disagree with its assessment,’ TikTok says in a statement to The Verge. ‘In the nearly two months since the President gave his preliminary approval to our proposal to satisfy those concerns, we have offered detailed solutions to finalize that agreement—but have received no substantive feedback on our extensive data privacy and security framework.’ …

‘Today, with the November 12 CFIUS deadline imminent and without an extension in hand, we have no choice but to file a petition in court to defend our rights and those of our more than 1,500 employees in the US. We remain committed to working with the Administration—as we have all along—to resolve the issues it has raised, but our legal challenge today is a protection to ensure these discussions can take place.’
