British lawmakers publish evidence from Cambridge Analytica whistle-blower

Apart from that, in 2012, SCL said that it carried out a caste census in Uttar Pradesh on behalf of a national party, not naming who, where it analysed the caste structure to identify the core and swing voters.

No one else in the world believes Christopher Wylie is important, apart from Christopher Wylie, CNN and the Mainstream Liberal Media.

Wiley said that the Canadian-based company that worked on Brexit, Aggregate IQ, was a "franchise" of SCL and built the software that Cambridge Analytica and others used for its election operations. SCL India also assisted the party in understanding how to use the diverse findings. This businessman wanted Alexander Nix to go and defeat the Congress in India.

The Spectator reports emails it has seen of Swiss lawyer Christian Kalin describing to Arnhim Eustace, leader of the opposition New Democratic Party (NDP) in 2010, potential investment opportunities with the party's leader while giving him instructions for one of his speeches. "Yes, SCL/CA works in India and has offices there".

Cambridge Analytica is a political consulting firm that blends strategic communications with data brokerage and data mining. "What can be a bigger lie than this?"

"When you work in Kenyan politics, or politics in a lot of African countries, if a deal goes wrong then you can pay for it", Wylie said. However, it didn't say for whom the project was conducted. Even before Wylie's tweet, Rai had mentioned this exact office address.

The Ghaziabad-headquartered company had branches across the country, including in Ahmedabad, Bangalore, Cuttack, Guwahati, Hyderabad, Indore, Kolkata, Patna and Pune. Rai says this is "absolutely false".

The funds saved can help the government bolster its finances and boost spending on health and education. During the same period, Air India Express had 555 slots at different domestic and worldwide airports.

In the pictures he tweeted, he named Nitish Kumar's Janata Dal (United), which had taken CA's services during the 2010 Bihar elections, in which the party had won as a part of an alliance with the BJP.

"What I heard was that he was working on some kind of deal of some sort", he said. And last October, BuzzFeed reported that Cambridge Analytica was hiring staffers for Mexico's upcoming presidential election.

Colorado Democratic Party Chair Morgan Carroll on Wednesday called for Colorado Attorney General Cynthia Coffman to investigate Cambridge Analytica's role in the state's 2014 elections, suggesting Colorado was "the guinea pig" in the company's "experiment" involving US elections. He added that he was not aware of the fate of Muresan who he also said had worked in India for Cambridge Analytica before his demise.

Wylie told MPs that it was "incredibly reasonable" to assume that marketing software used by Cambridge Analytica contributed to the Leave campaign's victory.

Cambridge Analytica has said it did not share the Facebook profile data with AggregateIQ, did not use it in the campaign to elect Donald Trump, and has deleted the data.

According to Wylie, a third-party app for Facebook called "thisisyourdigitallife" was created by Aleksandr Kogan, a professor at the University of Cambridge, purportedly for collecting data for academic purposes. "We had challenged the government to register an FIR against Facebook, lodge an FIR against CA, lodge an FIR against their Indian partners", said Congress spokesperson Randeep Singh Surjewala.

The Indian National Congress has, however, denied Wylie's claim. It uses its past collaboration with Avneesh Rai to make those claims. In 2007 it worked in Uttar Pradesh elections and in the same year, it did a research communication campaign to support a trans-national programme in Kerala, Bengal, Assam, Bihar, Jharkhand and UP simultaneously.
