(Tea Party 247) – An insider at Google who anonymously leaked internal documents to Project Veritas has decided to go public in an on-the-record video interview, and the insight he provides is explosive.
The insider, Zachary Vorhines, made the decision to unmask himself after Google allegedly called the police to perform a “wellness check” on him.
Along with his interview, Vorhines also asked Project Veritas to publish more of the internal documents he’d already leaked to them.
“I gave the documents to Project Veritas, I had been collecting the documents for over a year. And the reason why I collected these documents was because I saw something dark and nefarious going on with the company and I realized that there were going to not only tamper with the elections, but use that tampering with the elections to essentially overthrow the United States.”

In June, Project Veritas published the first documents, which had revealed “algorithmic unfairness” in the company’s search algorithms.
Vorhines told Project Veritas that the documents he had showed them were widely available to full-time employees of the tech giant.
“These documents were available to every single employee within the company that was full-time. And so as a fulltime employee at the company, I just searched for some keywords and these documents started to pop up. And so once I started finding one document and started finding keywords for other documents and I would enter that in and continue this cycle until I had a treasure trove and archive of documents that clearly spelled out the system, what they’re attempting to do in very clear language.”
Not long after the report which revealed the “algorithmic unfairness” was published, Vorhines received a letter from Google which contained several “demands” of him.
As he told Project Veritas, he complied with Google’s demands, one of which was to hand over any Google documents he may have kept. He said that he also sent those documents to the Department of Justice Antitrust Division.
Then, after being outed on social media as a “leaker” by an account which Vorhies believes belongs to a Google employee, he was approached by law enforcement at his residence in California.
According to him, San Francisco police had received a call from Google which prompted this so-called “wellness check.”
Vorhies described the incident to Project Veritas:
“they got inside the gate, the police, and they started banging on my door… And so the police decided that they were going to call in additional forces. They called in the FBI, they called in the SWAT team. And they called in a bomb squad.”
“[T]his is a large way in which [Google tries to] intimidate their employees that go rogue on the company…”
Project Veritas received partial footage of this terrifying incident, and the SFPD confirmed they received a “mental health call” and responded to Vorhies’ address that day.
Project Veritas explains:
Project Veritas has released hundreds of internal Google documents leaked by Vorhies. Among those documents is a file called “news black list site for google now.” The document, according to Vorhies, is a “black list,” which restricts certain websites from appearing on news feeds for an Android Google product. The list includes conservative and progressive websites, such as newsbusters.org and mediamatters.org. The document says that some sites are listed with or because of a “high user block rate.”
Another newly published document titled “Fringe ranking/classifer: Defining channel quality” lists an example ranking of various news sites, including CNN and FOX News. A document titled “Fake news & other fringe: Trashy recap” reveals that videos are rated by multiple “human raters.”
One internal Google document labelled “coffee beans” appears to show Google employees discussing diversity hiring practices. A related internal thread of communications also shows an apparent discussion about the “coffee beans” document, where one Google employee expresses concern that the document appears to “misrepresent Google’s hiring practices in a way that could raise legal questions…”
Another thread of internal Google documents shows Google employees discussing President Donald Trump’s infamous “covfefe” tweet, and a proposed plan to change the Google translation of the term.
Vorhies told Project Veritas that he hopes more insiders at Google decide to go public and discuss big tech abuses.
“My message to those that are on the fence is I released the documents. They can go in, they can see everything that Google is doing and then they can see the scale of it. Because I think that there’s a lot of engineers that have a hint that things are wrong, but they don’t understand the colossal scale that it’s at. And so for those people, I say, look at the documents, take the pulse of America, see what’s happening and come and tell the world you know what you already know to be true.”
Project Veritas requested comment from Google on this story but did not receive a response at the time of this publication.
