Whistleblower: Bannon and Cambridge Behind Voter Suppression Efforts

Bannon Tried To Use Cambridge Analytica Ads To Suppress Black Vote

Cambridge Analytica, the political consultancy at the center of Facebook privacy scandal, filed for Chapter 7 bankruptcy in the United States late on Thursday.

In a filing late Thursday, the United Kingdom -based company declared Chapter 7 bankruptcy protection in U.S. Bankruptcy Court Southern District of NY.

The filings note an estimated number of creditors between 1-49, estimated assets of $100,001 - $500,000 and estimated liabilities of $1,000,001 - $10 million.

The Mercer family is led by billionaire Robert Mercer, a Republican mega-donor with close ties to Mr Trump.

Cambridge Analytica whistleblower Christopher Wylie told Congress on Wednesday that the firm used by President TrumpDonald John TrumpGiuliani says Federal Bureau of Investigation may have placed spy in Trump campaign Giuliani: There is "nothing illegal about looking for dirt on political opponents" Giuliani: If Mueller subpoenas us, we will challenge it MORE's campaign in 2016 engaged in "voter disengagement" tactics targeting black Americans.

Apple then took the smartphone market by storm due to how it packaged technology, rather than developing the technology itself. Samsung was ordered to pay over a billion dollars to Apple , but that amount was later lowered to roughly $340 million.

"Over the past several months, Cambridge Analytica has been the subject of numerous unfounded accusations and, despite the company's efforts to correct the record, has been vilified for activities that are not only legal, but also widely accepted as a standard component of online advertising in both the political and commercial arenas", the company said in a May 2 statement.

"Although Cambridge Analytica may have supported particular candidates in United States elections, I am not here to point fingers". One, for example, seeks class action status on behalf of all NY citizens who were Facebook members and whose information was obtained.

A whistleblower from Cambridge Analytica set off a firestorm in March after he revealed how information was extracted from Facebook and used to influence voters. He said Trump's victory was one of the reasons he blew the whistle.

Zuckerberg has appeared before USA congressional committees to testify on data privacy and will meet leaders of the European Parliament soon. House Democrats who met with him in April called his information "disturbing".
