Fox News host Tucker Carlson revealed in an exclusive segment Monday that a newly obtained email from inside Google allegedly shows the tech giant’s pro-Hillary bias during the 2016 election.
“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.
The November 9, 2016 email obtained by Fox News reportedly came from Eliana Murillo, the former Head of Multicultural Marketing at Google.
“In her email, Murillo touts Google’s multifaceted efforts to boost Hispanic in the election,” Carlson said. “She knows that Latinos voted in record-breaking numbers, especially in states like Florida, Nevada, and Arizona.”
Carlson reported that Murillo said that Arizona was a “key state for us,” and 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.”
“[Google] supported partners like Voto Latino to pay for rides to the polls in key states,” the email allegedly states, describing the assistance as a “silent donation.”
“Murillo then says that Google helped Voto Latino create ad campaigns to promote those rides,” Carlson said. “At the end of her email, Murillo makes it clear that Google was working to get Hillary Clinton elected.”
“Ultimately, after all was said and done, the Latino community did come out to vote, and completely surprised us,” the email alleged states. “We 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 allegedly continues. “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.”
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.
A recent report from the Washington Examiner revealed that a newly released study “found that 90 percent of political donations by Google, YouTube, and other subsidiaries of Alphabet have gone to Democrats.”
