Cernekee said after he is posted to the tech giant’s internal message boards in 2015 irritated some of his colleagues, he later received an official warning from Google’s human resources, according to the Wall Street Journal.
His conduct was deemed disrespectful and insubordinate.”

The report also cites documents and copies of posts on the company’s internal message boards.
When Carlson ask the engineer if he thought Google would try to "influence" the 2020 election to stop Trump's re-election, he said:
"I do believe so. I think that’s a major threat. They have openly stated that they think 2016 was a mistake. They thought Trump should have lost in 2016."
Cernekee described Google as "highly ideological" and "plagued with bias."
He also claimed that employees ar Google dragged their feet to correct a search bug affecting President Trump.
"If you do a Google search for 'Crippled America,' which is Donald Trump’s book, you would get results that would show 'Mein Kampf' instead," Cernekee said, referring to the book by Adolf Hitler.
"I reported that, I filed a bug, I escalated it, I tried to run it up the chain. They took nine months to fix that bug."
In March, Trump warned that Google was helping the Chinese military as the US tech firm continues to work on business projects in China.
The president also accused Google of helping Hillary Clinton in the 2016 elections before trolling the tech firm by asking how it turned out.
