Billionaire investor Peter Thiel reportedly criticized Alphabet-owned Google and its ties to China at the National Conservatism Conference on Sunday. "Silicon Valley is getting a little bit of a bad conscience", Thiel said. Thiel said, according to news accounts of the event.

"There's this very peculiar background where Google is working with the Chinese communist government and not with the US military; so the Project Maven decision was a decision not to work with A.I., with the USA military - but they're working with the Communist Chinese", he told Fox News' Tucker Carlson on Monday in an exclusive interview.
Thiel's mention of treason plays well with Trump at a time when the president and many Republicans are accusing the company of having an anti-conservative agenda.
"The Trump Administration will take a look!" the president added on July 16, citing a Fox & Friends segment about Thiel's comments.
