Senior execs from Trump’s election consultants Cambridge Analytica [hired by Jared Kushner, Brad Parscale & Manafort; Bannon was a VP for CA] are caught on film saying they use bribes & Ukrainian sex workers to entrap politicians.
@Channel4News #Maddow
Trump campaign officials Jared Kushner, Paul Manafort & Brad Parsquale were key players in hiring "data firm" Cambridge Analytica, which improperly accessed personal data from Facebook users [and uses Ukrainian sex workers to entrap politicians].
Staff claim Cambridge Analytica and the Mercers ignored US ban on foreigners working on elections & employed non-American citizens in apparent violation of federal law, despite receiving a legal warning about the risks.

ICYMI: The head of Cambridge Analytica, Alexander Nix, said he asked WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange for help finding Hillary Clinton’s 33,000 deleted emails. This is the closest known connection btween Trump campaign & Assange.
“I kept asking Alexander, ‘Can you explain to me what they want?’” he said, referring to Mr. Nix, Cambridge Analytica CEO. “I don’t understand why Lukoil [Kremlin-supported Russian oil company] wants to know about political targeting in America.”
NEW undercover secrets of Trump data firm Cambridge Analytica: “We did all the research, data, analytics, targeting. We ran Trump's digital campaign...putting out positive messages through the official campaign & negative material through PACs."
Cambridge Analytica created the “Defeat Crooked Hilary” attack ads, that were funded by the Make America Number 1 super-PAC. Coordination between an official election campaign & any outside groups is ILLEGAL under US election law.

Cambridge Analytica CEO Nix said they use a secret self-destructing email system. "No evidence, no paper trail.” AND belittled House Intel Cmte to whom he gave evidence in 2017: "Republican members asked just 3 questions. After 5 minutes – done.”
ICYMI: Emerdata Ltd created by SCL/Cambridge Analytica's Julian Wheatland, with Erik Prince business partner Chun Shun Ko [appointed director Jan 2018] – just added Rebekah & Jennifer Mercer as directors, along w/ Alexander Nix [appointed in 2016].
Trump campaign manager & WH Chief Strategist Steve Bannon oversaw Cambridge Analytica’s collection of Facebook data AND the company's effort to ID & test anti-establishment messages that later emerged as central themes in Trump’s campaign speeches.
Cambridge Analytica's Nix: "...the candidate is never involved. He’s told what to do by the campaign team."
Reporter: "So the candidate is the puppet?"
Nix: "Always."

Obviously Trump is a puppet – except not Cambridge Analytica's but Putin's.
ICYMI: In an amended financial disclosure, ex-Trump NSA Mike Flynn was forced to disclose “a brief advisory role w/a firm related to Trump campaign's controversial data analysis company – Cambridge Analytica.”
