Peter Thiel says FBI, CIA should probe Google’s ‘seemingly treasonous’ ties to China

Billionaire Peter Thiel, a Facebook Inc. (FB)  board member and President Donald Trump’s most vocal backer in Silicon Valley, called Sunday night for the FBI and CIA to investigate Google’s “seemingly treasonous” ties with China. Speaking at the National Conservatism Conference in Washington, Thiel posed three unsubstantiated, provocative and leading questions that he said should be asked of Google, a unit of Alphabet Inc. (GOOGL)(GOOG) .
