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.”

‘Go look at President Trump’s Twitter’: Portland right-wing rally organizer claims ‘mission success’
The organizer of a far-right rally in Portland, Oregon claimed the event was a "success" after President Donald Trump attacked Portlandiers protesting the group.
"A confluence of protesters on opposite ends of the ideological spectrum merged on Portland’s waterfront Saturday in a tense but relatively uneventful face-off that brought national attention, including a tweet in the hours before the protest by President Trump decrying the city’s signature anti-fascist movement," the Oregonian reported Saturday.
When a similar right-wing rally in Charlottesville, Virginia killed Heather Heyer, Trump argued there were "fine people" on both sides of the "Unite the Right" rally.
Why was Jeffrey Epstein buying size 5 women’s panties — while in jail?
The Miami Herald has another bombshell report on Jeffrey Epstein, who died in a Manhattan jail while waiting to stand trial on federal sex crimes charges.
"A decade ago, during a brief stint in Palm Beach County Jail, convicted sex offender Jeffrey Epstein made an odd purchase at the facility’s store: two pairs of small women’s panties, size 5," the Herald reported Saturday night.
The newspaper noted, "the panties raise questions about why a childless male inmate, accused of sexually abusing girls as young as 14, would be allowed to buy female undergarments so small that they wouldn’t fit an average-sized adult woman."
