The Guardian and Observer have recently uncovered some disturbing and potentially incriminating findings into an undercover investigation into the British consultancy company: Cambridge Analytica.

The newspapers have gathered damming evidence that ties the company with Facebook and a data breach that could have affected up to 50 million people’s accounts. Furthermore, in secretly recorded conversations the Cambridge Analytica CEO, Alexander Nix, claims that he had met Donald Trump many times and the company actively coordinated to help his 2016 US Presidential campaign. 

The company have denied all allegations made against it.
