Epic found emails that makes it look like Kochikar advocated for a secret Google-Tinder deal.

“We would like to discuss mitigating that risk by offering 15% rev share to Match Group,” she wrote in one of them.

In another, she wrote that Google’s “value exchange models support the hypothesis that custom deals” like Project Hug would be enough to satisfy developers. It sounded like she was in favor of a “policy change without a public change to the business model.”

Kochikar keeps trying to suggest it’s more complicated than this, that Google looked at multiple factors beyond those “value exchange models,” but Epic lawyer John Hueston is reminding her to just answer the questions.
