FOCUS-U.S. and states' Google antitrust probe nears finish line

WASHINGTON, June 26 (Reuters) - The U.S. Justice Department is seeking the final documents to complete an antitrust investigation of Alphabet Inc's Google, said three sources familiar with the probe, which is expected to end with a lawsuit this summer. State attorneys general have separate probes into Google, and the U.S. House of Representatives Judiciary Committee has ongoing investigations into Google, Inc, Facebook Inc and Apple Inc. The department has requested information by the end of June from companies concerned about Google's abuse of its advertising clout, as well as those with data that could be used to support a complaint against Google, the sources said, noting that the deadline could be extended. Justice Department officials and some state attorneys general will hold a virtual meeting on Friday to discuss the probe, a person briefed on the matter said.
