It’s like a kids’ game of connect the dots. Bob Mercer and Cambridge Analytica are connected to Steve Bannon and Breitbart.com, who is connected to Donald Trump who was helped into the Oval Office by Julian Assange and WikiLeaks, which was approached by Trump’s digital team, along with Cambridge Analytica in its search for Hillary’s missing e-mails, which Donald Trump asked “the Russian Hackers” to find for him.
The Daily Beast connects the dots for you, and the resulting picture is one with the appearance of treason.
Alexander Nix, who heads a controversial data-analytics firm that worked for President Donald Trump’s campaign, wrote in an email last year that he reached out to WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange about Hillary Clinton’s missing 33,000 emails.
Nix, who heads Cambridge Analytica, told a third party that he reached out to Assange about his firm somehow helping the WikiLeaks editor release Clinton’s missing emails, according to two sources familiar with a congressional investigation into interactions between Trump associates and the Kremlin. Those sources also relayed that, according to Nix’s email, Assange told the Cambridge Analytica CEO that he didn’t want his help, and preferred to do the work on his own.
As we have reported numerous times, Cambridge Analytica — which played a huge role in the Brexit vote — is partially owned by Robert Mercer, a big-time funder of Breitbart.com and a mega-donor to Donald Trump. Is it any wonder that when the Trump Campaign wanted to dish dirt on Hillary, they’d turn the job over to their trusted friends at CA, which tried to get Assange and WikiLeaks on the payroll?
Mercer owns CA, Mercer owns Bannon, Mercer funds Breitbart.com, Mercer donates to Trump, Trumps digital team works with Mercer’s CA to entice Julian Assange and WikiLeaks to find the missing e-mails. The wheel goes round and round.
Keep moving folks. Nothing to see here.
