Embattled Data Firm Sent Foreign Workers To US Campaigns

"We exploited Facebook to harvest millions of people's profiles". Cambridge Analytica denies it used the Facebook data for its work on the Trump campaign.

A former employee of the data firm Cambridge Analytica tells CNN the company might have violated United States election laws by using non-US citizens to work on American campaigns during the 2014 midterm election cycle. The BJP attacked the Congress for teaming up with Cambridge Analytica for doing similar work during elections in India while the Congress blamed the BJP and Nitish Kumar's JD (U) for taking their help in various state elections starting from 2010.

It comes after he alleged the information mined from the profiles of 50 million Facebook users, gained via a security breach in a personality quiz, were used to get Cambridge Analytica's client Mr Trump elected by targeting voters.

The Cambridge Analytica whistleblower Christopher Wylie claimed that his predecessor could have been poisoned after being found dead in a Kenyan hotel room.

He also said that Cambridge Analytica has offices in India and employed staff. The defendants in the case are all non-US citizens.

The legal filings allege that Cambridge Analytica and its executives ignored Levy's advice and allowed foreigners to be involved in "management decisions of US political committee clients concerning expenditures and disbursements during the 2014 and 2016 elections".

Levy suggested in the alleged memo that Nix, as a foreign national, should recuse himself from "substantive management" of clients involved with American elections, but that advice was ignored by Cambridge Analytica, the complaints say. "We challenge you. They fear they will be exposed if they probe".

He said: "Very shortly after that meeting, they then engage AIQ", adding that his speculation was that the company was chosen because it would have "looked odd" if both Vote Leave and the separate Leave.eu Brexit campaign were both working with CA.

Undercover footage aired by the UK's Channel 4 also showed now-suspended Cambridge Analytica leader Alexander Nix, who said that his company could use prostitutes to entrap candidates. William Burck, an attorney for Bannon, declined to comment.

He claimed he had met Vote Leave's campaign director, Dominic Cummings, in November 2015, at a point when it was clear that the eurosceptic group had no database of its own. He said foreign employees were mindful of the applicable laws, but he added, "We might have been cavalier at times".

Earlier today, the Federal Trade Commission confirmed it was investigating Facebook over its privacy practices.
