Page's absence was widely noted last week when a seat set for a Google executive at a congressional hearing remained empty, while Facebook COO Sheryl Sandberg and Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey addressed lawmakers about Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election.

A spokesperson for Google was not immediately available to comment.
