A Google insider gave hundreds of documents to Project Veritas a right-leaning investigative journalism nonprofit, and decided to goes public in an on-camera interview for the first time. Zachary Vorhies worked as a software engineer at Google for eight years, and had been saving hundreds of documents over one year. Vorhies said, “I saw something dark and nefarious going on with the company and I realized that they were going to not only tamper with the elections, but use that tampering with the elections to essentially overthrow the United States.”
Along with the interview, Vorhies asked Project Veritas to publish more of the documents he had leaked. He said these kinds of internal documents were available to full-time employees, all he had to do was search a document, then type in keywords to find another document. He continued this process until he had a treasure trove of documents, that “spelled out the system, and what they were attempting to do in very clear language.”
Vorhies made it clear it was something he had to do, to come clean with the information he knew about a company with so much ‘political bias,’ which he felt could potentially harm future U.S. elections. “I’ve been living with this burden for 3 years, since 2016, when they started changing everything and to have that burden lifted off my soul, I’ve never felt happier, and more at peace with myself than right now,” said Vorhies.
Project Veritas has released hundreds of documents from Vorhies. In June 2019 they released a document leaked by the engineer (who remained anonymous at that time) called “Algorithm Unfairness.” Shortly after the document was released to the public, Vorhies received a letter from Google with several demands, one was asking him to hand over any documents that he had obtained. He compiled with Google’s demands, but had also sent the documents to the Department of Justice Anti-Trust Division. After he had been identified by an anonymous social media account (which he believed was a google employee) as a leaker. Google then called police and asked them to do a ‘wellness check’ on Vorhies. The former Google engineer said this was a way the company would “intimidate employees that go rogue with the company.”
That’s when Vorhies decided to go public with his identity and expose everything he possibly could to speak out more without fear and let the people of America know exactly what Google was up to. In one of the most recent documents, called ‘news black list site for Google’ restricts certain news sites from appearing in the google ranking. These included conservative websites such as newsbusters.org and mediamatters.org.
Vorhies said he hopes more fellow employees will go public and expose more of what they know about what Google is doing. “You know they can stop one or two of us, but they can’t stop all of us coming out and explaining to the American public, that this is whats happening, that Google is not who they say they are.”
