Cambridge Analytica as their primary service provider despite its lack of public presence before the Brexit referendum. You mentioned India as a prime source of business. And a whistleblower says he believes the firm, which has ties to the Trump presidential campaign, may have swayed the U.K.'s 2016 Brexit vote. "You mentioned they've done quite a bit of work in India".

According to Wiley, Cambridge Analytica also contracted its subsidiary company, AggregateIQ, to use the data obtained by Black Cube to spread anti-Muslim videos on Facebook in an effort to damage Buhari's presidential campaign. "I believe their client was Congress, but I know that they have done all kinds of projects".

The company though has not mentioned anything pertaining to Wylie's claim of Congress hiring Cambridge Analytica.

However soon after, British political consulting firm Cambridge Analytica in a statement said that Wylie has "misrepresented himself and the company to the committee, and previously to the news media".


He said: "Very shortly after that meeting, they then engage AIQ", adding that his speculation was that the company was chosen because it would have "looked odd" if both Vote Leave and the separate Leave.eu Brexit campaign were both working with CA. "I don't remember a national project, I know regionally", said Wylie while responding to a question on CA's work in India by Labour's Paul Fareely.

He offered to provide the committee "documentation" on India, which was welcomed by Farrelly, who said India was a country that did not need any added "tensions".

Cambridge Analytica worked "extensively" in India, and operated a system of "modern day colonialism", globally undermining democratic processes across the world, a British parliamentary committee heard on Tuesday, as Christopher Wylie, the whistleblower who blew the lid on the firm's gathering of data from Facebook, gave evidence, which drew in issues relating to Brexit, the United States election campaign, and other elections across the world.

He wrote: "The EC/ICO (Electoral Commission/Information Commissioner's Office) inquiries will look at the facts, the completely different stories that the whistleblowers tell each time they appear (their credibility is such that I bet their lawyers won't let them appear as witnesses), the evidence, and the law". "This was a breach of trust, and I am sorry", the back-page ads said.


The Facebook scandal over misuse of user information has reached a Canadian data analytics company. "India is so big that one state can be as big as Britain", he said adding that CA has offices and staff in India.

"I believe their (Cambridge Analytica) client was Congress. He was not, as he claims, a founder of Cambridge Analytica".

Cambridge Analytica also swiftly denied any links to the Israeli firm, saying in a statement Tuesday that it "has never worked with or been in contact with Black Cube in any capacity".
