Barack Obama has another major ally in the crosshairs of a scandal.
And this could have a major effect on the 2020 Presidential Election.
Barack Obama is losing his mind because one top ally was caught in an awful act of treason.
Google is one of the biggest and most powerful companies on earth.
The search engine giant is one of the handful of tech companies that controls the ability of Americans to express their political views.
Republican lawmakers and conservatives turned up the heat on Google in recent months over accusations of bias whereby Google manipulated search engine results to rank fake news media sites ahead of conservative news outlets.
And now Google is facing another massive scandal.
PayPal founder and pro-Trump tech executive Peter Thiel recently spoke at a conference and he accused Google of treasonous collusion with the Chinese government to censor the internet and to develop Artificial Intelligence software to benefit the Chinese military.
At the National Conservatism Conference, Thiel stated:
“Number one, how many foreign intelligence agencies have infiltrated your Manhattan Project for AI?
“Number two, does Google’s senior management consider itself to have been thoroughly infiltrated by Chinese intelligence?
“Number three, is it because they consider themselves to be so thoroughly infiltrated that they have engaged in the seemingly treasonous decision to work with the Chinese military and not with the US military… because they are making the sort of bad, short-term rationalistic [decision] that if the technology doesn’t go out the front door, it gets stolen out the backdoor anyway?”
President Trump picked up on Thiel’s jaw-dropping allegations and tweeted that his administration would investigate Google’s shady dealings with the communist Chinese.
“’Billionaire Tech Investor Peter Thiel believes Google should be investigated for treason. He accuses Google of working with the Chinese Government.’ @foxandfriends A great and brilliant guy who knows this subject better than anyone! The Trump Administration will take a look!” the President tweeted.
Thiel’s comments also put the focus back on the Obama administration’s cozy relationship with Google.
In 2016, The Intercept reported that Google executives attended White House meetings more than once a week from Obama’s earliest days in office through 2015.
Johanna Shelton – Google’s top lobbyist – visited the White House 128 times which was more than any company’s lobbyist.
In addition, more than 250 people shuttled back and forth working between the Obama administration and Google.
This scandal with Google leads many Americans to wonder what Obama and his team knew about Google’s dealings with China and what they did about stopping one of America’s tech powerhouses from working with a hostile foreign power on projects that threaten American national security.
Politicians in both parties have tech companies under a microscope.
Democrats like Elizabeth Warren want to break up firms like Google because they have too much power over data, advertising and the flow of information.
Republicans such as Josh Hawley want to pass legislation requiring Google and other social media companies to be politically neutral to maintain the special carve-outs they currently enjoy under the law.
Google’s collaboration with the communist Chinese will increase the number of Americans calling for tech companies to be reined in.
