Conspiracy theorist and Infowars founder Alex Jones was on hand to greet Google CEO Sundar Pichai on his arrival for a House Judiciary Committee hearing on the company’s data collection practices and alleged political bias within search engine results.
“You sold this country out,” Jones shouted at Pichai. “You won’t even help the Pentagon out and you help the Chicoms. You bet on the wrong country, Sundar.”
He then went on to accuse the Google CEO of lying to Congress.

Pichai said in his prepared remarks that he leads Google “without political bias” and works “to ensure that our products continue to operate that way.” To do otherwise, he said, “would go against our core principles and our business interests. We are a company that provides platforms for diverse perspectives and opinions—and we have no shortage of them among our own employees.”
