At least 14 people who President-elect Joe Biden has chosen to serve in his administration or to advise his transition have worked for the Big Tech firms that continue to banish conservatives — including President Donald Trump, Chuck Ross reports for The Daily Caller.

The Big Tech firms all took action against Trump and Parler, a free speech social network, in response to riots at the U.S. Capitol last week.

Twitter permanently banned Trump from the site due to their alleged claim of “the risk of further incitement of violence” and Facebook has suspended Trump’s account until the end of his presidential term.

In an effort to prevent further riot organizing, Google and Apple removed Parler from their app stores and Amazon Web Services announced they will no longer host the site.

Apple said on Friday that Parler had “not taken adequate measures to address the proliferation of these threats to people’s safety.”

Parler is currently offline until it finds another web host.

Facebook and Twitter executives have been hired by the Biden administration to serve in the White House during his term.

Jessica Hertz, who was a director for Facebook’s regulatory team, will serve as White House staff director. Emily Horne, who was head of global policy communications for Twitter, will be the director of press and spokesperson for the National Security Council, according to the Biden-Harris transition website.

David Recordon, a former developer for Facebook, will serve as director of technology for the Office of Management and Administration. Austin Lin, a former program manager at Facebook, will serve as Recordon’s deputy.

Amazon, Apple and Google executives will also hold positions in the incoming Biden administration.

Amazon executives Tom Sullivan and Mark Schwartz are on the agency review teams for the Department of State and Office of Management and Budget.

A program manager for Google’s Global Business Operations Deon Scott, is on the review team for the Department of Homeland Security.

Facebook executives Zaid Zaid, Rachel Lieber and Christopher Upperman are on the transition review team. They are advising nominations for the Department of State, Intelligence Community and Small Business Administration.

The Biden Inaugural Committee released a list of its donors Saturday of who has donated to the Biden inauguration fund. Big Tech companies like Google, Microsoft and Comcast all publicly donated to the fund.

Biden also took more money from Big Tech than any candidate in American history, according to The Spectator. Moreover, donations to the Democrats by Bay Area residents rose from $163 million in 2016 to $199 million in 2020.

PJ Media report: SHOCKER! WaPo Update About Mar-A-Lago Raid Doesn’t Fit the Narrative

PJ Media’s Kevin Downey Jr. has dissected a Washington Post report regarding findings from the raid of former President Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago estate. “Shocker! WaPo Update About Mar-A-Lag0 Raid Doesn’t Fit the Narrative” Downey Jr.’s report is titled.

“Remember when the FBI raided Trump’s home supposedly looking for “nuclear secrets” a few months back? Guess how that turned out?” the article begins.

I’ll let the quislings at the Washinton Post spell it out:

Federal agents and prosecutors have come to believe former president Donald Trump’s motive for allegedly taking and keeping classified documents was largely his ego and a desire to hold on to the materials as trophies or mementos, according to people familiar with the matter.

In other words, Trump was keeping souvenirs, as everyone else does.

Funny how WaPo sat on that story until after the midterms, right?

But wait, there’s more!

That review has not found any apparent business advantage to the types of classified information in Trump’s possession, these people said. FBI interviews with witnesses so far, they said, also do not point to any nefarious effort by Trump to leverage, sell or use the government secrets. Instead, the former president seemed motivated by a more basic desire not to give up what he believed was his property, these people said.

The WaPo also found no evidence that Trump was looking to “leverage, sell or use the government secrets.”

They threw the idea in near the very end that they still might come up with something juicy:

The people familiar with the matter cautioned that the investigation is ongoing, that no final determinations have been made, and that it is possible additional information could emerge that changes investigators’ understanding of Trump’s motivations. But they said the evidence collected over a period of months indicates the primary explanation for potentially criminal conduct was Trump’s ego and intransigence.
