On Monday, Fox News’ Tucker Carlson reported that a November 9, 2016 email obtained exclusively by his program reveals what appears to be proof of Google’s anti-Trump bias in the 2016 election. According to the report, the email was written by Eliana Murillo, the former head of Multicultural Marketing at the company.
“An email obtained exclusively by this show reveals that a senior Google employee deployed the company’s resources to increase voter turnout in ways she believed would help the Clinton campaign win in the last election,” Carlson said in his report.
“In her email, Murillo touts Google’s multifaceted efforts to boost Hispanics in the election,” he added. “She knows that Latinos voted in record-breaking numbers, especially in states like Florida, Nevada, and Arizona.”
According to Carlson, Murillo bragged that the company “used its power to ensure that millions of people saw certain hashtags and social media impressions with the goal of influencing their behavior during the election,” while calling Arizona a “key state for us.”
The email reportedly said that Google “supported partners like Voto Latino to pay for rides to the polls in key states,” describing the effort as a “silent donation.”
“Murillo then says that Google helped Voto Latino create ad campaigns to promote those rides,” Carlson reported. “At the end of her email, Murillo makes it clear that Google was working to get Hillary Clinton elected.”
The email went on to say that the company “never anticipated 29% of Latinos would vote for Trump. No one did.”
“If you see a Latino Googler in the office, please give them a smile,” the email reportedly says. “They are probably hurting right now. You can rest assured that the Latinos of these blue states need your thoughts and prayers for them and their families.”
Now there's a shock!

At the very least should be considered an illegal campaign contribution to Nth degree.

FEC needs to investigate, put a dollar value on the bias, and classify it as an in-kind contribution to the Democrat party.

We tend to agree.
The Daily Wire’s Ryan Saavedra added:
The revelation comes as pressure has mounted against the tech giant over its alleged bias against conservatives, and as Twitter and Facebook both face similar concerns from their users.
President Donald Trump has played a major role in bringing the issue into the national spotlight with recent tweets accusing Google of bias.
Here’s Carlson’s video report:
Carlson said the company did not deny the authenticity of the email.
It would seem that we now have the “smoking gun” that shows Google took action to meddle and interfere with the election in a partisan effort to help one candidate over another. Worse yet, if they did it once, wouldn’t it be reasonable to assume that they would do it again?
Exit question: Will Republicans in Congress finally take action or will they continue to sit on their collective thumbs while pretending this isn’t happening right in front of their faces?
