Amazing reporting by @MarkDiStef from Buzzfeed. @carolecadwalla sued other journalists at Channel Four - and tried to force them to disclose their sources!

The #CambridgeAnalytica story was broken two years ago - by other journalists. buzzfeed.com/amphtml/markdi…
, @carolecadwalla also threatened BBC Panorama, trying to stop them verifying if Chris Wylie @chrisinsilico was telling the truth (!) C4 undercover filming of Nix was a sensation. Journalists she sued there refused to share a stage with her last night buzzfeed.com/amphtml/markdi…
Cadwalladr crowns this by threatening @nytimes to take her source to @WashingtonPost and calls @MarkDiStef sexist for reporting on emails which he’s clearly seen. “Reveal your sources”? Amazing.

#CambridgeAnalytica was a 2015 scoop by @harryfoxdavies. theguardian.com/us-news/2015/d…

1. visto che è successo ieri? Una settimana fa una giornalista top del #Guardian,non una qualsiasi, quella che ha rivelato scandalo #CambridgeAnalytica,twitta una foto di personaggi legati alla presunta operazione di influenza da parte dei russi su elezioni2016 USA
2. la foto mostra 2personaggi del presunto "complotto" #Russia-#Trump che si incontrano a Londra. La giornalista #Guardian twitta: "plot tickens"(la trama s'infittisce) e scrive che il posto in cui si sono incontrati è la scalinata dell'ambasciata dell'Ecuador a Londra
3. anche un orbo riconoscerebbe che la scalinata indicata dalla giornalista del #Guardian NON è affatto quella dell'ambasciata dell'Ecuador a Londra: che è facilissima da riconoscere per il portone

Yesterday @SenBlumenthal blamed @FTC for failing to enforce the Facebook consent decree. If they had, he suggests the #CambridgeAnalytica data harvesting scandal wouldn’t have happened. mediapost.com/publications/a…
Yesterday Facebook’s Richard Allan acknowledged to Grand Committee of 9 parliaments that the #CambridgeAnalytica scandal badly damaged Facebook’s public trust. hollywoodreporter.com/news/facebook-…
But will they ever admit that consumer and data protection rules and enforcement could have helped Facebook from its own worst tendencies? Information Commissioner Denham’s response to Facebook’s decision to appeal her DPA 1998 penalty says it all. theguardian.com/technology/201…

BIG: Parliament seizes cache of Facebook internal papers regarding #CambridgeAnalytica theguardian.com/technology/201… by @carolecadwalla
Documents that won’t be made public. No story has more fascinating transnational jurisdictional jujitsu.
Beginning to see why Zuck is afraid of appearing before a government that won’t display an abject deference to a domestic powerhouse?

Tune in Tuesday to the multi-parliament hearing in UK. Zuckerberg defied his summons, sending spox instead. @podehaye and @ICOnews commish set to appear. #CambridgeAnalytica
The Brits are not used to witnesses lying to MPs, but that’s what Alexander Nix of Cambridge Analytica, Arron Banks & Andy Wigmore of LeaveEU, and spokespeople for Facebook have all done. They have misled, deceived, and misrepresented to the @CommonsCMS committee.
Wondering why former PM of St Kitts giving evidence to UK Parliament? Reportedly disgraced Alexander Nix seeks new work subverting elections in the Carribean where he cut his teeth harvesting data illicitly. Also implicated in a passport for cash scheme. fastcompany.com/40571052/how-c…

What incentives do social media companies really have to election integrity?

Seems negligible beyond PR crisis management when they can evade Congressional inquiry like this.
When they repeat “we are committed to election integrity” like the hymns of corporate gospel but then evade the tough questions by *our* elected representation, their whole song rings hollow.

THREAD: Finally had a chance to do a close reading of the @ICOnews #CambridgeAnalytica report. Key passages follow, with an emphasis on the impact on US politics and implications for what’s to come…
ico.org.uk/media/action-w…
2. Right upfront, Elizabeth Denham emphasizes unique transnational conditions of investigation. When critics say Cambridge Analytica no different than Obama campaign please consider this internationalization of Republican data operation and new challenges of enforcement.
3. We may never know if influence operation was effective. But we definitely know that personal privacy rights were badly infringed. Data crimes occurred. We need to focus on this more than debating “psychometrics” as we consider how to prevent another #CambridgeAnalytica debacle

A must read. In the wake of the announcement that the NCA are investigating him, more revelations come about @Arron_Banks today from whistleblowers and the excellent @openDemocracy keep up the good journalistic work #BadBoysNeverWin
@Arron_banks @openDemocracy Entirely consistent with what @AndyWigmore told me. Listen to him say they used the insurance company staff here the must-hear audio is part of my evidence to @CommonsCMS
parliament.uk/documents/comm…
@Arron_banks @openDemocracy @andywigmore @CommonsCMS Here's a fuller account drawing on my interviews that was published on #LeaveEU which presented evidence of their copying #CambridgeAnalytica methods and using Eldon Insurance staff on the campaign. #ArronBanks data.parliament.uk/writtenevidenc…

Cambridge Analytica and SCL Elections are still operating. I have files strongly indicating this from 6 days ago.
Gov't investigations would be wise to get preservation notices out to AWS Ireland for anything interacting with ca-eng[.]io, auth[.]ca-eng[.]io, vault[.]ca-eng[.]io
And for everyone digging for nuggets of truth (gov't or otherwise), look into https://clear[.]ai

THREAD on the Subject of #Brexit & Respect...with a hint of Betrayal.

#Remain #Remainers, #RemainerNow Pls RT or feel free to Use this whenever you are told to Respect the Non-Binding Referendum & by all means add some more.
1. #Brexiters & #Lexiters have 2 justications, apart from 'we won you lost', for the #BrexitShambles.
Namely that we must RESPECT the #Brexit Ref result & that to seek to overturn it would BETRAY the Will of the 'British People'. (nb they often omit the N. Irish)
2. Respect or Lack of Respect & Betrayal at the heart of #Brexit...so...why should we Respect the EURef 2016 & Who or What is being Betrayed?

1.@Arron_banks spent Banks spent £8m+ on Brexit. which is indeed very strange since he had real financial difficulties in 2014.
@Arron_Banks, you meeting #Russians in 2015 was really lucrative?

2.@Arron_banks also holds a lot of cash in #Lesotho Holdings, and used that cash to pay local politicians he advised

When I found the exposed 154 million US voter database in June 2016, I was able to trace the data to a company named L2 Political.
L2 then traced the leak to a client of theirs. The client claimed hackers had taken down their firewall which then publicly exposed the database.
L2's client did not suggest that *I* was the hacker(s) who had removed their firewall and exposed the database.
If true, this means there is confirmation, from the holder of the data, that a nationwide US voter registry _was_indeed_hacked_ months prior to the 2016 election.
I can't believe I didn't recall this sooner. Foreign hacking of the US election system was not much of a topic when I originally reported this 154 million voter record leak and the detail of actual confirmation of a US nationwide vote hack became lost in the ether.

Exclusive: leaked papers reveal racist slur by Alexander Nix, who is pitching to run election campaigns in Caribbean

Former Cambridge Analytica chief used N-word to describe Barbados PM

theguardian.com/uk-news/2018/o…
"Alexander Nix, the former chief executive of the elections consultancy Cambridge Analytica, is facing fresh questions about his conduct after a leak of documents revealed he used a highly offensive racial slur to describe the prime minister of Barbados."
"The British consultant, who lost his business after an investigation by the Observer exposed the firm’s unauthorised use of data from millions of Facebook users, has been pitching to once again run election campaigns in the Caribbean." 🙄🤦🏾‍♀️

Defence entered a Not Guilty plea this morning in Westminster Magistrate Court. Trial is set for January 2019. #CambridgeAnalytica
It’s a criminal act in the UK to defy the Information Commissioner’s specific order to comply with data protection law. This order is from May 2018 and now we can confirm it will go to trial in the UK next year. wired.com/story/uk-regul…
A “defunct” company sure seems willing to spend its allegedly sparse resources going to trial against the data cops for refusing to hand over all the personal data it collected about me. What are they hiding? Will their creditors tolerate this?

“One thing you want to do is identify the type of person you could exploit and undermine them psychologically.” - Christopher Wylie, formerly of #CambridgeAnalytica forbes.com/sites/jeffkauf…
"They’d find people who were less resilient psychologically… you essentially tried to exacerbate distrust and paranoia.” #MAGAts
"Wylie's role...was to take traditional military "information operations," or information warfare, and translate them into digital operations...."

British political life has become shameless. How did we get to the point someone is a hero for being under investigation for electoral fraud/contempt of court/lying? I think the turning point was the rehabilitation of Rebekah Brooks as head of Murdoch’s empire.
Brooks was found not guilty. But the high bar of proof needed to get to trial, let alone the sheer incompetence of running a criminal enterprise unawares, should have excluded her from her role as Britain’s biggest publisher. But no, she was reinstated. The rot right there.
In another age, Murdoch’s apologies would have meant something. In another age, he and Brooks would have to spend years in public service (like Profumo) to atone. But no. Once they’d got away with hacking and kompromat, others like #CambridgeAnalytica would rapidly follow.

Oh God. The app which has compromised all the phone numbers and emails of the Conservative Party is the notorious UCampaign app! Allied to #CambridgeAnalytica. I'll try to grab some info in the thread below
Here's a thread with some background on Thomas Peters who devised it.

This app is also one of the many bits of evidence that the same (probably hacked Facebook) analytics were used in the Leave Campaigns and for Trump @carolecadwalla @VickerySec @profcarroll businessinsider.com/donald-trumps-…

Meet Tim Graboski, aka whiterook6. He works for AggregateIQ as software developer. If that name sounds familiar, it’s because they helped #CambridgeAnalytica during the 2016 election. And apparently they’re still interested in our elections. #Midterms2018 #osint #infosec
We know that part of the seed data for the models used by CA came from Facebook surveys users filled in as part of an app. Well doesn’t this look familiar....this is a project called Campaign Pillar aka Check-In. “AIQ” is plainly visible. As are the targeted election questions.
Well this little gem comes to us courtesy of Tim’s GitHub repository, found here : github.com/whiterook6/che… Currently available to the public (cloned in case it comes down).

Data privacy as a national security issue? —Sen Wyden #TechHearing
Facebook - Yes
Twitter - Yes
Google - N/A
Wyden goes for the jugular - Microtargeting for voter demobilization. Will we ask about Cambridge Analytica here? #TechHearing
Nope. Not yet. This has been covered in Canadian parliament committee. But not yet in the US Congress. #TechHearing #CambridgeAnalytica
