Bannon turned Cambridge into 'propaganda machine,' whistleblower says
Advertisement
Cambridge Analytica whistleblower Christopher Wylie told Democrats on Capitol Hill that former Trump campaign strategist Steve Bannon asked the embattled data firm to study voter suppression strategies as the group also conducted test messaging on Russia.

In a closed-door meeting Tuesday, Wylie told Democratic Members of the House Judiciary Committee and the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform that Bannon specifically tasked Cambridge Analytica with looking at ways to depress Democratic turnout with their messaging.

Cambridge Analytica “was set up to be essentially a full service propaganda machine,” Wylie said. He spoke to Democrats on the House Intelligence Committee in separate closed-door meeting Tuesday.

Bannon acknowledged helping to found Cambridge Analytica and coming up with the company’s name at a Financial Times conference in March. “I helped put the company together and gave it that amazing name,” Bannon told the conference.

But, he said he “didn’t even know about the Facebook mining,” referring to the scandal surrounding data on up to 87 million Facebook users that was improperly sold to Cambridge Analytica to help the company develop messaging for Republican candidates in U.S. elections. The company was later hired by Donald Trump’s campaign.

Bannon did not respond to a request for comment on this story.

The democratic primaries were being suppressed by Bannon and Cambridge?
Why? They knew the primaries on the democrat side were pointless and rigged by the DNC for Hillarity.

The Trump campaign cut ties with them well before the general election.

Quote:Wylie says he recognized Trump campaign slogans about "the wall" and "the swamp" because Cambridge Analytica tested them for Trump before he even announced his election bid. CA's denials about what they did for Trump campaign don't seem credible.

Suspended Cambridge Analytica (CA) CEO Alexander Nix said his firm "ran all the digital campaign" for President Donald Trump and played a crucial role in Trump winning the electoral college by a margin of 40,000 votes in three states, reports the UK's Channel 4 News. While being secretly recorded by an undercover reporter, Nix and other CA executives discussed how they acted as a conduit between the Trump campaign and outside super PACs — which is illegal under U.S. election law.

RE: Bannon turned Cambridge into 'propaganda machine,' whistleblower says

Cambridge Analytica is dead – but its obscure network is alive and well

The company’s executives have formed a web of linked companies, suggesting its work will continue




Are Cambridge Analytica and SCL Group attempting to evade recent negative coverage, only to re-form and continue their work as part of a new entity?

Damian Collins, the British MP who chairs the digital, culture, media and sport Committee that is investigating SCL and Cambridge Analytica, tweeted some words of caution on Wednesday after the news broke, noting that CA and SCL “cannot be allowed to delete their data history by closing”.

Certainly the news presents as many questions as answers.

Cambridge Analytica and SCL have at least 18 active companies, branches, and affiliates with similar names, based in the UK and the US. The complex relationship among these companies makes it very difficult to understand how revenues, employment, and data are shared. It almost seems as though the business structure was created to make it impossible to track decision-making and funding.

On Wednesday afternoon Cambridge Analytica issued a press release stating: “SCL Elections Ltd., as well as certain of its and Cambridge Analytica LLC’s U.K. affiliates (collectively, the ‘Company’ or ‘Cambridge Analytica’) filed applications to commence insolvency proceedings in the U.K.” It also stated that “parallel bankruptcy proceedings will soon be commenced on behalf of Cambridge Analytica LLC and certain of the Company’s U.S. affiliates in the United States Bankruptcy Court for the Southern District of New York.”

It is notable that Cambridge Analytica’s press release does not mention SCL Group Limited, SCL Social Ltd, or SCL Insight Ltd. Is it closing only some affiliates and leaving others open?

Shortly after the whistleblower story on Cambridge Analytica’s use of Facebook data broke in March, the Cambridge Analytica CEO, Alexander Nix, was suspended and three US states opened investigations into Cambridge Analytica and Facebook. In the following weeks, current and past employees of Cambridge Analytica and Facebook have testified in the UK, the US, Canada and other countries, and a US and UK class action lawsuit was filed against both companies in early April.

Whistleblower says Bannon used Cambridge Analytica to suppress black voters

The whistleblower behind the Cambridge Analytica Facebook data scandal told CNN Wednesday that Steve Bannon, President Trump's former top political adviser, directed the firm to carryout voter suppression tactics against black voters in 2016.

The backdrop: Christopher Wylie, a former Cambridge Analytica employee, said he didn't participate in the activity, but that Bannon wanted to "discourage or demobilize certain types of people from voting." This revelation follows Wylie's testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee that the firm had used methods to discourage voting among targeted populations. Bannon did not immediately respond to Axios' request for comment.
