An employee at Google’s News Labs, which has trained thousands of journalists since its founding in 2015, is calling Republican politicians “traitors” and demanding they be thrown in jail.
Ashley Alese Edwards posted a number of tweets targeting various Republican senators and congressmen, calling for draconian punishments for alleged “treason.”
“Fucking treasonous terrorists,” said Edwards in a tweet two days ago. “Every single one of the Republicans who enabled this need to be jailed.”

The Google employee went on to brand Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) a “treasonous coward,” Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) a “treasonous clown,” said Rep. Nicole Malliotakis (R-NY) was “complicit in this insurrection,” and branded GOP leader Rep. Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) a “traitorous clown.”
She simultaneously called for multiple prominent Republicans to resign, while mocking those who did resign, like education secretary Betsy DeVos.
“Your resignation is going to do nothing to salvage your reputation,” she said.
Google openly interfered in the 2020 election, using its dominance in search to suppress Breitbart News and other conservative media in the months before election day.
Far-left Google employees have in the past sought to use the company’s dominance in digital ads to punish conservative media, in particular Breitbart News.
Leaked materials obtained by Breitbart News in 2018 revealed relentless agitation inside the company to blacklist Breitbart News from Google’s ad services.
