Google Should Be Probed Over China Treason Claim


President Trump has said his administration will look into alleged links between Google and China.

It follows a speech given by Peter Thiel in which the billionaire tech investor asked whether Google’s senior management considered itself to have been infiltrated by Chinese spies.

Mr Thiel also questioned why Google had made “the seemingly treasonous decision to work with the Chinese military” but not that of the US.

Google has denied such ties.

But the tech firm has yet to respond to the President’s intervention.
