Cambridge Analytica to be inspected under a warrant to be taken out by the UK Government’s information commissioner, following a report from Channel 4 News in the UK that personal data of 50 million Facebook members may have been used to influence the US presidential election in 2016.

Furthermore Channel 4 News had film footage suggesting Cambridge Analytica could use honey traps and “potentially bribery to discredit politicians”..

CA, of course, denies these charges. Hence the application for a warrant

The CEO of CA, Alexander Nix, responding to a question on “deep digging” is reported to have said “Oh, we do a lot more than that”. So what might he have had in mind? Any comments dear readers! But maybe not good to put too many words into his mouth at the same time, this could induce unhealthy choking.

We believe this may well be the very thin edge of a much broader wedge that will snowball, and grow, and grow, , so let’s keep tuned in to see what happens in the coming weeks and months! Links to Russia’s cyber activities.in recent past cannot be ruled out.
