Mercer-backed Cambridge Analytica not only was linked w/#Russia🇷🇺oil co #Lukoil, but Aleksandr Kogan (Cambridge Univ “academic” who harvested Facebook data for >50mln Americans) had previously unreported ties to a Russian university.🙄 1/…
Cambridge Analytica shared *details on targeting US voters* w/Lukoil, while Kogan developed Facebook data as a political tool & also was an assoc professor at St Petersburg State Univ, taking #Russian🇷🇺govt MONEY to fund research of social media‼️2/

NONE of Kogan’s Cambridge Univ colleagues knew of his post in St Petersburg.🤨

Kogan didn’t mention #Russia🇷🇺in his 10-page CV (resumé) he posted on a Cambridge U website . His CV lists undergrad prizes & grants of a few thousand dollars + dozens of media interviews.🤔 3/
A Cambridge Analytica employee mentioned Kogan’s #Russian🇷🇺work in an email to CEO Nix about a pitch to a Caribbean nation, including “criminal psychographic profiling via intercepts”.🤨 4/
🔥The employee wrote CEO Nix: “We may want to either loop in or find out a bit more about the *interesting work* Alex Kogan has been doing for the #Russians🇷🇺and see how/if it applies.”🙄 5/


Kogan claims that his St Petersburg position emerged “by chance” on a social visit.🙄

Kogan is a native Russian speaker👉🏼 born in Moldova and brought up in Moscow until he was seven, then his family emigrated to the US, where he later became a citizen.🤔 6/
#Russia🇷🇺is *known* to use cutouts — witting and unwitting, commercial and academic — to shield their involvement and/or purpose of an operation.🤔

Mercer-backed Cambridge Analytica w/BANNON on its board sat at the CENTER of the nexus btwn Russia and Trump’s digital op.🤨 7/
Is *anyone* surprised to hear that Mercer/Bannon’s Cambridge Analytica — who worked on BOTH Trump’s campaign and #Brexit — has ties w/#Russia🇷🇺that they FAILED to disclose to British Parliament just last month⁉️8/

A Russian-American guy(who “just happened” to get PAID by the Russian govt) “just happened” to develop Cambridge Analytica’s technology. Cambridge Analytica “just happened” to share details on targeting US voters w/a #Russian🇷🇺company AND “just happened” to work for Trump‼️9/
NO WAY all of these things “just happened” by random chance‼️

Our British allies are closing in, at the same time that Mueller is. And justice WILL be served.😎
