Former Google CEO and technology billionaire Eric Schmidt was involved with Biden’s White House science office in a way that raised serious ethical concerns.
Politico reports that Schmidt, a former CEO of Google and a left-wing millionaire, has even paid government officials, among other things. President Joe Biden granted the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy (OSTP) “unprecedented access and power,” and according to Politico, Schmidt was heavily involved through his foundation, Smith Future. OSTP prioritizes $ 1.4 trillion in annual federal spending on health and science, and it is increasingly focused on artificial intelligence, according to Politico.
Politico reports that more than a dozen staff members in the 140-member office were in some way associates of Schmidt, and some were current employees of Schmidt. Employees of the two science offices, “Charity Arm” and Schmidt were indirectly paid in the future, for a few weeks, wrote Mark Idinf, a senior OSTP official and current chief of staff, Politico. Another science office employee who received financial support from Schmidt was an unpaid consultant and Schmidt employee who had to leave the science office position following “ethics allegations.” According to Politico, Schmidt Future Fellowships were another financial benefit offered to OSTP staff.
The former CEO of Google has been involved with the government for years. Schmidt, who works for the Obama Department of Defense, recently called on technology companies to become more involved in national security, a suggestion that Rep. Greg Steve (R-FL) exclusively called MRC Free Speech America “incredibly dangerous.” Schmidt helped former President Bill Clinton develop his WhiteHouse.gov website and personally campaigned for former US President Barack Obama and presidential candidate Hillary Clinton. Britbert reports on Schmidt’s long association with the defense industry, including the Obama administration’s Defense Innovation Board.
Schmidt is on the boards of several technology companies, including an artificial intelligence (AI) or 5G focus. The former Google CEO chaired the National Security Commission on Artificial Intelligence, founded in 2018, Politico reports. He advocated for more federal involvement with AI and 5G. According to Britbert, Schmidt has poured millions into defense defense startup insurgency, which is linked to the Biden administration through Biden’s transition team. Schmidt is a strategic advisor to the blockchain project Chainlink Labs. Politico writes that Schmidt helped launch and continue on the board of Civic Analytics, which supports the Democrat campaign, including Biden’s 2020 campaign.
Politico writes that “OSTP ethics officials were alarmed” by the involvement of Smid Future in the “recruitment and use” of both colleagues and mentors.
Among other Biden executives, Schmidt has ties to Eric Lander, former Biden OSTP chief and founding director of the Broad Institute. According to CNN, Lander Biden has resigned as science adviser following a scandal at work.
