Fired Google engineer tells Tucker Carlson the tech titan will try and stop president Donald Trump from winning re-election

A former Google engineer who was fired from the company more than a year ago says he believes the search engine giant is working to prevent Donald Trump from winning re-election.
Software engineer Kevin Cernekee, 41, who left Google in June of 2018, said he thinks his former employer's progressive workforce has plans to manipulate help tip the scales against Trump in the 2020 race.
'I think that's a major threat,' Cernekee told Fox News' Tucker Carlson Tonight show. 
'They have openly stated that they think 2016 was a mistake. They thought Trump should have lost in 2016. They really want Trump to lose in 2020. That's their agenda.' 
Cernekee's employment with Google was terminated in June of 2018 after company leaders accused him of violating their policies on multiple occasions, according to a termination letter obtained by the Wall Street Journal.

According to Cernekee, the issues started in 2015 after a handful of conservative posts on Google's internal message boards upset some of his coworkers.
 He said he received an official warning from human resources about the content, which was characterized as disrespectful and insubordinate, the Journal reported.
Cernekee claims a senior manager added him to a 'written blacklist' of employees he refused to work with around the same time.
His views became in an issue again when Cernekee said he stood up for his colleague, who complained about Google's diversity initiatives, saying that the company shouldn't hire employees based on race or gender.

'A bunch of people jumped on him and started cussing him out and calling him names. And then his manager showed up in the thread and denounced him in public. I was very disturbed by that,' Cernekee told the Journal.   

Cernekee's alleged offenses also included improperly downloading Google information and misusing the company's remote-access software system, allegations Cernekee has denied, according to the Journal.
Cernekee, an outspoken Republican, told Carlson he thinks he was let go because of his conservative views, which he said made him infamous in Silicon Valley's largely progressive ranks.
He indicated he filed an EEOC complaint for discriminatory treatment based on political bias after he said he and other conservative employees were mistreated, abused and harassed for questioning Google policies and sharing their views. 
'Google knew about [the] federal investigation from the labor board. I was working very closely with an investigator over there,' Cernekee said. 
'What happened was Google decided they did not like this investigator. They made a lot of false accusations against me. And they fired me. They said in writing that the reason they fired me was for participating in this labor investigation and they're basically daring the government to do anything about it.'
Allegations of political bias at Google are nothing new. 
The company was criticized for firing engineer James Damore in 2017 after Damore defended the gender gap in Silicon Valley tech jobs as a matter of biology.

Google CEO Sundar Pichai defended Damore's right to criticize Google training, workplace ideology and analyze whether its programs promoting workplace diversity are egalitarian enough, but said 'portions of the memo violate our code of conduct and cross the line by advancing harmful gender stereotypes in our workplace.'
'To suggest a group of our colleagues have traits that make them less biologically suited to that work is offensive and not OK,' Pichai added.
President Trump and other prominent conservative voices have accused Google of gaming search results to the detriment of Trump backers and supporters of the GOP.
The accusations increased in December after Breitbart and the New York Times reported on a leaked video showing leaders at the company fretting over Trump's unanticipated 2016 White House win. 

In the hour-long video Google Co-founder Sergey Brin described Trump's victory as 'a huge disappointment.'
'Myself as an immigrant and a refugee, I certainly find this selection deeply offensive,' Brin said in the video of one of the company's T.G.I.F. town hall meetings. 'I know you do to. It conflicts with many of our values. I think it's a good time to reflect on that and we're going to hopefully share some thoughts today.'
Google has denied that it actively manipulates results based on political bias and search engine experts have said the likelihood of such an endeavor is implausible, the New York Times reported.
But Cernekee told Carlson the company's leadership is 'highly ideological,' describing an instance where Google users who would try and search for Trump's November 2015 book 'Crippled America' would be directed to view results for Adolf Hitler's 'Mein Kampf' instead.
'I reported that. I filed a bug against it. I escalated it. I tried to run it up the chain,' he said. 'They took nine months to fix that bug. They just stalled at every opportunity. They assigned it to people who no longer work there. They made every excuse in the book to avoid taking down something that made Donald Trump look bad.'
