This is such a shocking story in its details.

We shrug off #DataPrivacy because we think it's basically inconsequential to our real lives. But the impact of #CambridgeAnalytica just began to be felt in 2015 and spread to 50 MILLION or 1 in 6 Americans.
The panoply of ways Trump used his cachet w/ billionaire supporters like the Mercers should concern everyone, including those on the right & left who just eyeroll these investigations as about #HillaryClinton when that's tangential to our national security & honest elections.
Every American should want to know what happened in 2016 because every American who's a critical thinker knows the person who wins the most votes won the election.

Moreover, everyone knows Democratic systems ensure an unskewed result, unlike #Russia's imminent election.
FB denying a data breach happened parallels Americans being told #HillaryClinton didn't reach working class voters when she won voters making <$50k overwhelmingly and also won women & POC--80% of America's working class.

These lies go beyond 2016 to impact 2018 & 2020.
What will happen to #CambridgeAnalyticaFiles? Where will that accumulated data from the "non-data breach" go? How much of it has already been sold to some other entity?

Details are staggering. Two decisive votes were involved: #Brexit & US POTUS election 2016.

Both upsets.
Pundits can assert myriad reasons for both #Brexit & Trump winning upsets. But ignoring the information revealed Friday on #CambridgeAnalytica would be nonsensical.

The culpability of the Trump administration is revealed daily. But will anyone ever be held responsible?

Assiduous work, some genius and the Mercers billions fueled #CambridgeAnalytica.

That they got the desired result was by no means an accident.
Where do we go now?

With the #AndrewMcCabe & #StormyDaniels scandals, as well as the latest call by Trump's attorneys to end the #MuellerInvestigation, will this even survive the weekend news cycle or will it--with help from #Facebook--be buried?

Troubling questions all.
