Trump campaign data operation had stolen Clinton emails ‘more than a month’ before WikiLeaks: bombshell report

Published

on

The company that ran then-candidate Donald Trump’s data operation in 2016 reportedly obtained Hillary Clinton’s stolen emails more than a month before WikiLeaks published them.

In a column for the British magazine Spectator, BBC correspondent Paul Wood revealed that Cambridge Analytica, the now-defunct company which was in charge of microtargeting voters for the Trump campaign, was in possession of Clinton’s emails at least a month before WikiLeaks was known to have them.

“The (now shuttered) British company did the Trump campaign’s data,” Wood explained. “Its speciality was ‘microtargeting’: individual messages tailored to individual voters, delivered by email, Facebook and Twitter.”

“The US intelligence agencies believe that Russian internet ‘troll factories’ were also pushing out pro-Trump propaganda on social media: sometimes fake news, sometimes real news, such as the hacked contents of Clinton’s emails,” he continued. “The question is whether this was done in coordination with the Trump campaign.”

Wood said that he had information from an “American lawyer” who knew that Cambridge Analytica was in possession of the emails, which U.S. intelligence agencies later determined were stolen by Russian hackers.

An American lawyer I know told me that he was approached by a Cambridge Analytica employee after the election. They had had the Clinton emails more than a month before they were published by WikiLeaks: ‘What should I do?’ Take this to [special counsel Robert Mueller], the lawyer replied.
