In several email exchanges between Eric Schmidt the Executive Chairman of Alphabet, Inc. the parent company of Google, we are beginning to see not just a close relationship with the Clinton campaign, but one that is making many uneasy coming from a company that holds so much of people's data.
While it would not be unexpected for a guy like Schmidt to propose such a high tech type of plan as he did in wanting to help the Clinton campaign, it raises questions being that he potentially has access to everyone's data with an Android phone in addition to running the world's largest search engine, video site, and one of the largest cloud services.
According to the Wall Street Journal, Google has censored YouTube videos, other reports have shown they have altered search results, Edward Snowden has shown they turned over mega amounts of data to the government about U.S. citizens, and now we are seeing reports about how deeply Schmidt is tied to the Clinton campaign.
In an internal update memo, we see the staff talking about "the work being done by Eric Schmidt’s group."
He may have described some of this work in his initial plan outline. "Key is the development of a single record for a voter that aggregates all that is known about them. In 2016 smartphones will be used to identify, meet, and update profiles on the voter," he said.
Now he is in part talking about campaign workers carrying around smartphones updating voter information, but what does identify mean?
In an email between Clinton Campaign manager Robby Mook and John Podesta the Chairman of the campaign talking about bringing on someone else for the project they said:
"We are desperately trying to get him to oversee the Eric Schmidt project. He's apparently open to doing it but a little worried about how legit it is and what it means for later on. I was hoping you could call him to tell him how important the project is and how much faith higher ups would have in his ability to deliver a really good product ...and how that would inevitably mean a position later."
How Legit it is?
They Continue " Mikey is low key so I'm not worried about him blabbing if you tell him it's a confidential conversation."
It's not just Google. The memo speaks about this special relationship with multiple companies.
"We have begun having discreet conversations with some of these companies to get a sense of their priorities for the coming cycle," they say.
Why would these companies have priorities?
High-tech companies maintain vast amounts of personal information on most all of us. Knowing that they are conducting secret projects with hidden priorities should lead every American to demand answers.
