Prove it. File a complaint. The Federal government, which routinely fines companies for far smaller infractions than that, would have Microsoft in an audit, and court proceedings, in a matter of minutes.
Prove it.
All the available evidence suggests the Trump administration is loaded with some of the most corrupt lobbyists in US History, so why would they turn on Microsoft?


"When Donald Trump picked hotshot Wall Street defense lawyer Jay Clayton to head the SEC Wednesday, there was a predictable outcry from certain quarters. Ohio Sen. Sherrod Brown, who sits on the banking committee, had one of the most circulated quotes:

"'It’s hard to see,' Brown said, 'how an attorney who’s spent his career helping Wall Street beat the rap will keep President-elect Trump’s promise to stop big banks and hedge funds from "getting away with murder.'”

Taibbi: Trump Pick Jay Clayton Will Be Most Conflicted SEC Chair Ever
There is a huge difference between saying "conflicted" and "corrupted".

You have no proof he is corrupt. If you do, then take him to court and prove it.

This is the irony of the left-wing. Al Gore made calls from his office, to shake down companies for donations. That isn't opinion. That's fact. We have the audio recordings of those calls.

But the left-wing almost voted in Al Gore, who was absolutely proven to be corrupt, yet here you have Clayton who has done absolutely nothing corrupt whatsoever, and you are already calling him out? For what?

You are not able to name one single thing that he did that was illegal yet.

All he has done is represent a couple of banks in court, in the past. Now that creates another irony.

How many hundreds of lawyers have represented the most evil, and obviously guilty people in our society, and you never once see a left-winger claiming that lawyer can no longer be anything but corrupt.

But a guy who represents a bank, you condemn on zero evidence. How ironic that is. I don't remember a single left-winger in my entire life, that said Johnnie Cochran or Carl E. Douglas the black lawyers for OJ Simpson, who got a clearly undeniably guilty man off on a murder charge. But you are more than willing to condemn someone who represents Goldman Sachs.

And left-wingers say Capitalists are greedy money grabbers who don't care about lives?
Yet you don't care about people killed every day in Defund the Police movements, and BLM protests, and starvation in Venezuela, but boy oh boy if you think they stole a dollar from you.... you attack, condemn, and destroy their character, without even knowing them.

Who is the money grubbing greedy person who doesn't care about lives? Not me...

There is no evidence of that. The fact you, and those like you, are still pushing myths like Trump/Russia, proves the system is not operating as a corporatocracy. Such mythology would never exist if corporations were in control.
The vast majority of evidence for Trump's collusion with Russia over the past three decades is likely buried in his tax returns and other financial documents, and when he's no longer POTUS that evidence will become public.

Trump’s Tax Returns Could Shed Light on His Connections with Russia

"In 2010, Trump partnered with the Russian-run Bayrock Group, successfully completing a hotel in New York. In 2013, he brought his Miss Universe beauty pageant to Moscow, boasting that 'almost all of the oligarchs were in the room.'

"Trump is also under scrutiny for his possible connections to a Russian state-run bank, VEB, which U.S. investigators are examining because it helped finance Toronto’s Trump International Hotel and Tower.

"None of these stories tell us if Trump currently has business dealings in Russia or with Russian leaders. His tax returns would give us a clearer, more up-to-date picture.

"Trump’s sudden dismissal of FBI Director James Comey came immediately after the director sought more resources to investigate Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential election—outside interference the FBI suspects the Trump campaign may have supported."

A: If Trump has actual connections with the Russian government, it certainly hasn't been shown in anything you have posted thus far.

B: Trump dismissal of James Comey, who lied constantly, doesn't show anything.

C: Trump involvement with a state run bank, means nothing, but I find it interesting that you think it does. Just a few posts ago, you supported state run banks. Now you are automatically assuming with zero evidence, that someone using a state-owned bank must be corrupt.

So which is it? Are state run banks good, or are they corrupt? Or is it only other state run banks that are bad, which implies that ones run by our government politicians can't be corrupt.... in which case, what is your complaint against Trump again? Can't be corruption....

D: Trump partnered with the Russian-run Bayrock Group, successfully completing a hotel in New York, and so what? The Bayrock Group has zero connection to Russia, or the Russian government, or Putin. Tevfik Arif (founder and former CEO of the company) is actually half Turkish, and lives in Turkey.

I find it interesting that simply because he is half Russian, you call it a Russian-run company, and assume with zero evidence that they are engaged in corruption and collusion with Russia.

You realize what you did there? That is as clear a definition of Racism as you can get. That is way way way worse than anything Trump has ever said about Mexicans.
