Cambridge Analytica whistleblower says he’s working with US officials

Christopher Wylie, the whistleblower in the Cambridge Analytica data scandal, says he’s cooperating with U.S. officials

Wylie will meet with “law enforcement and the Department of Justice” as well as Congressional investigators, he said Sunday on NBC News’ “Meet the Press.”

“We're just setting out dates that I can actually go and sit down and meet with authorities,” Wylie said.

The former Cambridge Analytica co-founder came forward last month to accuse the firm of hoarding data on 50 million Facebook users, which sent shockwaves through Silicon Valley.

Cambridge, which was hired by the Trump campaign and has dismissed the co-founder as a disgruntled ex-employee, used that data to mold ads to sway voters, Wylie claimed.

Facebook admitted last week that Cambridge may have actually harvested data on a whopping 87 million users, far higher than the original 50 million.

Facebook has come under fire for knowing about the data breach since 2015, but only recently banished Cambridge Analytica.

“My biggest worry with all this is that the privacy issue and what I call the propagandist issue are both too big for Facebook to fix, and that’s the frightening part,” Kennedy said Sunday on CBS News’ “Face the Nation.”

Although Kennedy said he didn’t want to “regulate them half to death,” the problems raised in the Cambridge scandal shows “our promised digital utopia has minefields in it.”

“I do not want to hurt Facebook,” he said. “It's done a lot of good but how do we preserve the good things about Facebook while mitigating the obvious detrimental effects of it. It's, it is a minefield in many respects.”
