A new bombshell report from the United Kingdom’s Channel 4 News delves into Cambridge Analytica’s work for President Donald Trump’s campaign in 2016 — and it contains information about some potentially illegal tactics used to help get him elected.
In new undercover footage filmed by Channel 4 News, Cambridge Analytica CEO Alexander Nix can be seen boasting that his firm “did all the research, all the data, all the analytics, all the targeting” for Trump’s campaign.
The executives filmed by Channel 4 News also discuss potential coordination between Trump’s campaign and outside Super PACs, which is supposed to be illegal in the United States.
Specifically, the executives admitted that they took funding from the Make America Number 1 super-PAC and used it to create an anti-Hillary Clinton attack ad, even as they were supposedly doing research, targeting and analytics directly for the Trump campaign.
“Coordination between an official election campaign and any outside groups is illegal under US election law,” Channel 4 News notes. “Cambridge Analytica deny wrongdoing, insisting a strict firewall separated out their activity and that they were transparent about their work on political campaigns and PACs.”
