There’s been a lot of noise surrounding Dr. Robert Epstein’s research that suggested that Google manipulated a “rock bottom” minimum of 2.6 million votes toward twice failed Democrat presidential candidate Hillary Clinton in 2016.

President Trump tweeted about it, the leftstream media went into “fact checkmeltdown mode, and Democrats, including Clinton herself, parroted Google’s claim that Epstein’s report was “debunked.”

Powerline reports:

Dr. Robert Epstein is a psychologist, professor, and author. He’s the former editor-in-chief of Psychology Today.

Dr. Epstein is a liberal Democrat. In testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee (see below), he described himself as a “vocal public supporter” of Hillary Clinton. He said that to characterize him as not a Republican and not a conservative is “an understatement.”

Epstein testified that in the 2016 election, Google generated a minimum of 2.6 million votes for Clinton through deceptive manipulation of search results. He warned that if, in 2020, companies like Google and Facebook all support the same presidential candidate (as surely they will) they could affect up to 15 million votes, e.g. by “go vote” reminders sent only to those believed to be Democrats.

. . . .  Epstein isn’t just a respected psychologist. He’s a liberal who supported Hillary Clinton. Epstein has no political interest in arguing that her vote total was inflated through manipulation.

The parallel claim cannot be made when it comes to those who argue that Russian efforts on social media swung the election to Trump. To my knowledge, those who advance this theory are all Democrats and/or Trump haters. They have a strong political interest in claiming “we was robbed.”

Last month, Epstein testified before the Senate on Google search engine manipulation.

Watch his exchange with Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX):

President Trump, upon learning of Epstein’s research, tweeted:

Epstein also took to Twitter to tweet his thoughts about Hillary and Google.

Hillary called out Epstein in her response to Trump and claimed that his work had been “debunked.”

Epstein responded on Twitter and on the Tucker Carlson show.
