“Recently leaked emails from Clinton campaign manager John Podesta show an extremely close relationship between the Clinton campaign and Google parent company Alphabet’s Executive Chairman, Eric Schmidt,” Lucas Nolan reports for Breitbart. “The emails between Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta and campaign manager Robby Mook show that Schmidt met with Podesta and was interested in assuming the role of ‘head outside advisor.'”

“This is not the first time that Eric Schmidt has been implicated with the Clinton campaign. In previously leaked emails written by Teddy Goff, a former Obama campaign Digital Director now working for the Clinton campaign, ‘Working relationships with Google, Facebook, Apple, and other technology companies’ were discussed,” Nolan reports. “Google as a company has also been accused of working with the Clinton campaign. WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange claimed that Google as a company was ‘directly engaged’ in the campaign. Specifically, Assange claimed, ‘The chairman of Google, Eric Schmidt, set up a company to run the digital component of Hillary Clinton’s campaign.'”
