Hillary Clinton defended Google on Monday after President Donald Trump tweeted about a study claiming the search company was responsible for manipulating 2.6 to 16 million votes for Hillary Clinton in the 2016 presidential election.
“Wow, Report Just Out! Google manipulated from 2.6 million to 16 million votes for Hillary Clinton in 2016 Election! This was put out by a Clinton supporter, not a Trump Supporter! Google should be sued. My victory was even bigger than thought! @JudicialWatch,” Trump wrote Monday morning.
By afternoon, Clinton had responded with the following: “The debunked study you’re referring to was based on 21 undecided voters. For context that’s about half the number of people associated with your campaign who have been indicted.”
In reality, only 6 of the 34 indicted by Mueller in the course of his investigation were on Trump’s campaign staff–and none of those were indicted for anything having to do with Trump or the campaign. But nice try, Hillary. If you’re going to attack Trump’s honesty, you could at least be honest yourself.
Trump is right to be concerned about tech companies with liberal leanings using their vast networks to influence the 2020 elections. With the polarization currently evident in the electorate, even a small number of votes being manipulated could have grave consequences for the integrity of the election.
