@apblake: Google ‘directly engaged’ with Clinton campaign, Julian Assange claims

Julian Assange accused Google’s top executives of colluding with Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign during a media event Tuesday in Russia as the WikiLeaks founder rekindled concerns over two of his most frequent targets.

Speaking remotely from the Ecuadorian Embassy in London, the Australian hacker-turned-whistleblower was addressing attendees at an international media forum in Moscow when he made the allegations about the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee and one of Silicon Valley’s largest companies.

Google is directly engaged with Hillary Clinton’s campaign,” Mr. Assange claimed, according to Russian state-owned media.

Google “is intensely aligned with U.S. exceptionalism,” and its employees will likely be rewarded if Mrs. Clinton wins the presidential election come November, Mr. Assange added.

Individuals “at the top” of Google are personally involved with the Democrat’s campaign, and “almost certainly… will be placed into positions around the new Clinton presidency” if she ends up in the White House, Mr. Assange claimed.

“The chairman of Google, Eric Schmidt, set up a company to run the digital component of Hillary Clinton’s campaign,” Breitbart News quotedMr. Assange as saying.
