House Republicans warned Yahoo CEO Marissa Mayer not to comply with January riot-related-records requests.

But Mayer hasn't been CEO of the telecom giant since 2017.

Verizon Media — which includes Yahoo — was sold to a private-equity firm this year.

House Republicans wrote a letter to Marissa Mayer — who they described as "President and Chief Executive Officer" of Yahoo — warning her of legal action should the company hand over private data to a committee investigating the January 6 riot.

However, Mayer hasn't been CEO of Yahoo since 2017, when she resigned after spending five years attempting to pull the media giant back from a steady demise.

Verizon bought Yahoo in 2017 and merged it with AOL, rebranding the pair as Oath, with Alibaba alum Guru Gowrappan serving as CEO.

Gowrappan will remain CEO of the entity, Business Insider previously reported. »
