Several weeks ago, a video was released from Project Veritas showing high-ranking Google executives attempting to concoct a plan that would interfere in the 2020 presidential election and prevent another "Trump situation." Now, one billionaire is saying the tech giant should be federally investigated for allegedly assisting the Chinese military, according to a report from Axios.

Peter Thiel, a Facebook board member, thinks its time that Google be investigated by the FBI and the CIA. Thiel made the remarks while speaking at the National Conservatism Conference Sunday night. He also said that Google should be asked three questions:

"Number one, how many foreign intelligence agencies have infiltrated your Manhattan Project for AI?

"Number two, does Google's senior management consider itself to have been thoroughly infiltrated by Chinese intelligence?

"Number three, is it because they consider themselves to be so thoroughly infiltrated that they have engaged in the seemingly treasonous decision to work with the Chinese military and not with the US military... because they are making the sort of bad, short-term rationalistic [decision] that if the technology doesn't go out the front door, it gets stolen out the backdoor anyway?"

Is it time for the federal government to step in?
