REVEALED: Trump-backing data analytics boss asked Julian Assange to help find Hillary’s missing emails

Published

on

Alexander Nix, the CEO of Cambridge Analytica, directly reached out to WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange to ask for his assistance in obtaining and publishing Hillary Clinton’s missing emails from her tenure as Secretary of State.

The Daily Beast reports that Nix, whose company was instrumental in helping Trump’s election victory last November, sent out an email to Assange to offer the WikiLeaks founder his company’s help in tracking down the missing Clinton emails.

Assange responded to say that, while he appreciated the offer, he preferred to work on his own.

“If the claims Nix made in that email are true, this would be the closest known connection between Trump’s campaign and Assange,” the Daily Beast writes.

Cambridge Analytica, which performed data mining and digital voter targeting operations for Trump’s 2016 campaign, is being investigated for possibly sharing its voter data profiles with Russian intelligence services in the run up to the 2016 election. The firm has collected data on millions of Americans based on their Facebook likes and uses this data to deliver targeted messages to voters aimed at appealing to their deepest hopes and fears.

Cambridge Analytica is heavily funded by the billionaire Mercer family, who are top financial backers of both Trump and Breitbart News.

"I do think he’s misunderstood," Haley replied.

"I can tell you, from the first day to the last day that I worked for the president, he always listened, he was always conscious of hearing other voices, allowing people to debate out the issues, and then he made his decision," Haley claimed.

She argued that, "I saw a president that was very thoughtful, looked at all of the issues, made decisions, and it was a pleasure and honor to work with him."

Jimmy Carter hospitalized due to complications from his recent falls: report

Published

on

On Monday evening, former President Jimmy Carter was admitted to Emory University Hospital in Atlanta.

Carter, aged 95, is reportedly being treated for pressure on his brain due to bleeding — a complication from recent falls. His condition is currently unknown.

Carter, who served as president from 1977 to 1981, has placed a strong emphasis on humanitarian work in his years after leaving office, in many cases going to physically build homes with Habitat for Humanity despite his advanced age. He has suffered numerous health issues in later years, including surviving cancer, and often allows himself little time for recovery from these episodes before returning to his postpresidency works.
