Trump hints that Google could face treason investigation for alleged links to China

Huawei’s issues with the US government may have eased for the time being, but it seems that Google could soon face heightened scrutiny over its alleged links with China according to a tweet from President Trump. This comes after entrepreneur, Peter Thiel, a Facebook board member, made comments during the National Conservatism Conference about the possible infiltration of Google by Chinese intelligence.

According to the comments, originally reported by Axios, Peter Thiel believes that Google needs to answer the following three questions:

  • “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?”

In case you weren’t aware, Peter Thiel is considered the tech industry’s most fervent supporter of President Trump. He made the call for the FBI and the CIA to investigate Google for aiding the Chinese government on the US TV show, Fox and Friends.
