Google has placed the Project Veritas whistleblower and senior software engineer Greg Coppola on administrative leave less than 24 hours after he publicly suggested the company is politically biased.

Earlier today the investigative reporting outlet Project Veritas released an interview with Copolla where he talked about what he says is Google’s political bias, that way Google boosts the CNN website in its search results, and how he thinks some of the statements Google CEO Sundar Pichai made during his congressional testimony were untrue.

Around 12 hours after the interview was posted, the Head of Project Veritas James O’Keefe announced that Coppola had been placed on administrative leave by Google.

O’Keefe did note at the end of the interview that Coppola losing his job at Google was a possibility by saying:

“Greg Coppola may lose his job that he loves and is well paid to do. But he came forward because he believes the American people need to know the truth about what is going on at Google.”

Copolla being placed on administrative leave is the latest example of Google and other big tech companies taking action against whistleblowers and people who comment about the company’s internal policies. Former Google engineer James Damore was fired after writing an internal titled “Google’s Ideological Echo Chamber” while former Google engineer Mike Wacker was fired after speaking against what he called “outrage mobs.”

The former Pinterest engineer Eric Cochran was also fired after being interviewed by Project Veritas and providing documents that showed Pinterest was maintaining internal blacklists.
