Brexit campaigners breached UK vote rules, lawyers say | Bangkok Post: news

A day after Cambridge Analytica whistleblower Christopher Wylie alleged that the Congress party was one of its clients while presenting its testimony in the UK Parliament, on Wednesday tweeted a document saying that he was providing the details of some of SCL's past projects in India.

Wiley said it was "categorically untrue that Cambridge Analytica has never used Facebook data" that was taken in the 2016 election, as the Facebook data was foundational for creating Ripon.

When probed by Farrelly about Cambridge Analytica's role in India, Wylie said that the firm has offices and employees in the country and offered to produce documents related to the firm's operation in India.

In a tweet, Wylie likened SCL's presence and work in India to "modern colonialism" and posted what can only be described as SCL's "brochure of achievements" in India.

Speaking to the British MPs on Tuesday, Wylie said Cambridge Analytica worked extensively in India and that he believed the Congress party was one of its clients.

In the 2007 Uttar Pradesh polls, SCL India carried out a full political survey on behalf of a "major party" which the document didn't name.

John Bolton is an atrocious pick for national security adviser
But with Pompeo set to replace him and Bolton on his way to the White House , the accord's coffin may well have been nailed shut. Bustani, the USA led the campaign to remove him because he was planning to inspect Iraq's state facilities for chemical weapons.

Yesterday, while deposing in front of United Kingdom lawmakers, Wylie had said "I believe their client was Congress but I know that they have done all kinds of projects". Tyagi has pointed out that Cambridge Analytica's tactics were not used in their India campaigns, that they (CA and SCL) had yet to make a mark in India and that SCL did not help out OBI in any "digital capacity".

Referring to documents that he had submitted to the committee as part of its inquiry into fake news, Wylie, said: "There is a quote from somebody who until very recently ran the Prevent programme... that doesn't mean that [SCL] work on Prevent but I know that people who have worked on Prevent have also worked with SCL on projects".

"I've been getting a lot of requests from Indian journalists".

In 2009 general elections, SCL India managed the campaigns of a number of Lok Sabha candidates, and its research and campaign data collection methodologies formed strategies to give the clients successful campaigns.

The company at the centre of the scandal is Cambridge Analytics, a consulting firm set up to convert the data of Facebook users into tailored psychological profiles which could then be used to target them with customised political advertisements. "Most of these updates have been in the works for some time, but the events of the past several days underscore their importance", the company said in a statement.

With Wylie's help, Cadwalladr revealed how CA scooped up data from millions of Facebook users in the US.

But one thing seems certain: a late first-round pick isn't going to be enough for the Giants to trade their best offensive weapon. We want guys who are passionate about playing the game. "But if you're asking me for a 100 percent guarantee, nobody has that".

Minutes later, Congress spokesperson Randeep Surjewala vehemently denied all such charges and accused Ravi Shankar Prasad of lying and challenged the government to register a First Information Report (FIR) against Cambridge Analytica, its Indian partner Ovleno Business Intelligence and Facebook. We challenge you (Bharatiya Janata Party).

He also stressed how the different parts of SCL Group worked together, and pointed to a recent Gizmodo article showing that AggregateIQ, which said that it did not enter into a contract with Cambridge Analytica.

More recently, media reports have noted that Cambridge Analytica representatives held meetings with top BJP and Congress leaders to secure a deal for the upcoming 2019 elections.
