Trump Campaign Downplays Cambridge Analytica Role:

The Trump campaign on Wednesday attempted to downplay the role Cambridge Analytica played during the election, following a Daily Beast report that one of its tech gurus contacted Julian Assange to offer assistance with the Clinton email leaks. The Republican National Committee was actually Trump’s “main source” of data analytics, the campaign said in a statement that did not mention the confirmed Assange connection. “Any claims that voter data from any other source played a key role in the victory are false,” the statement added, again avoiding the report itself. However, FEC data contradicts the campaign’s claims, as it was reported that Team Trump paid Cambridge Analytica $5.9 million from July 29 to December 12, 2016.
