🇷🇺Cambridge Analytica 🇷🇺
As my previous entry stated, it appears that once again the MSM is transfixed on Cambridge Analytica as it relates to Trump et al. But from a historical standpoint I opted to dig a bit deeper because it helps to better contextualize how monolithic the MONEY in the 2015/2016/2017 campaign was.
My rough estimate is Cambridge Analytica saw a 7,000% increase in the 2013/14 to 2015/16 election cycle. That’s why I felt compelled to give you guys the WHOLE picture versus a portion of…what I can deduced is large (wealthy) donors sent millions of dollars through a series of SuperPACs (by they SuperPACs do NOT need to disclose where the money originated) have an unlimited cap. For example that’s how the Mercer & Koch families have infused tens of millions in to our elections.
Here’s the link to the RAW FEC data of the 2013/14 search I ran but there are several expenditures that do NOT show up in a search. My conclusion is the parameters to a “universal” search there’s a fluke in the FEC database. Expenditure reports -should- capture ALL moneies paid, it appears the 24-48 hour “FEC Notices” do not show up unless you query for them. See B-PAC report for my proof in concept below
B-PAC FEC ID No: C00567982
FEC 2013/2014 $125,000.00 paid to Cambridge Analytica, link to report, here
This is classified by the FEC as a 24 Hour report of Expenditures and does not show up in a query of: Cambridge Analytica, my hunch is there maybe several other reports similar to B-PAC.

🚨cough and pardon me for this lengthy sidebar🚨
FYI this is and always has been a Ted Cruz PAC.
Never ever forget this incontrovertible FACT: KellyAnne Conway worked for Cruz’s presidential campaign first. Conway is best friends with Becky with the shittyhair
Conway & Bannon bought Cambridge Analytica to Trump’s campaign
With each passing day, the likelihood of Conway (if there’s a God, Justice or Karma) and Becky will be cellmates in a Federal Prison increases exponentially. The Bracewell Giuliani Legal Memo to Cambridge, coupled with Becky’s e-mail to Nix about “organizing Sec Clinton’s illegally stolen emails”.
- March 2016 Papadopoulos meets with Professor Mifsud who was accompanied by a Russian woman, Olga Polonskaya, presumed fiancé
- from March to September 2016 Papadopoulos requested six times that Trump or more senior Trump Campaign officials meet with Russian.
- May 2016 Mercer puts feelers out about Clinton’s stolen emails
- June 2016 Trump Tower Trump Campaign meeting with Russian
- July 2016 Cambridge Analytica CEO exchanged emails with Wikileaks
- August 2016 Becky sends e-mail to Nix about organizing stolen emails
- September 2016 Trump Jr has multiple DMs & emails from Wikileaks
“Rebekah Mercer, a billionaire supporter of Trump, exchanged emails with Cambridge Analytica CEO Alexander Nix about the hacked emails.“ WSJ Article, here
“Cambridge Analytica CEO Alexander Nix told other employees at the firm and Rebekah Mercer, a top Republican donor, that he had recently reached out to Mr. Assange to offer help better indexing the messages WikiLeaks was releasing to make them more easily searchable. Those emails included a trove of messages stolen from Mrs. Clinton’s campaign chairman John Podesta’s account and from the Democratic National Committee.”
Ms. Mercer and a person close to her had a brief conversation regarding Mrs. Clinton’s deleted emails in June 2016, a month after Mr. Cruz had dropped out of the race, the person said. The person said they discussed whether it would make sense to try to access and release those emails, but ultimately decided that looking for them would create “major legal liabilities” and would be a “terrible idea.”
That conversation took place before WikiLeaks started publishing the separate trove of Clinton-related emails in July 2016, and before the Mercers had officially begun supporting Mr. Trump’s campaign, the person said. A representative for the Mercers didn’t return a request for comment.
The Wall Street Journal previously reported that longtime Republican operative Peter W. Smith in 2016 mounted a campaign to obtain the same 33,000 emails, which he believed were stolen from Mrs. Clinton’s private server, likely by Russian hackers.
That haggered sewer-rat alternative facts-Barbie and Becky should die penniless in jail. Sorry NOT sorry. You defraud the United States of America of a free & fair election, aiding and abetting a foreign hostile adversary, GTFO of my Country #Kellywise you nasty washed up haggered traitor-tot. See New Yorker Article, here
But back to Cambridge Analytica & numerous PACs...I always say, do not search using a data point that can and is proned to “changed”. From my experience when a PAC changes its name you need to ask yourself, why? At some point between late 2015 & early 2016 this PAC changed their name. See FEC 2016 Miscellaneous Filing, here
Not to belabor the point, but ALWAYS use a CONSTANT, as in the FEC ID number. FEC Committee ID #: C00536540

Cambridge Analytica “Research” Total: $341,025.00
See this previous entry about John Bolton and his expenditures to Cambridge Analytica, here.
The fact that John Bolton is Trump’s 3rd NSA absolutely scares the crap out me. Meaning he actually controls the flow of information going to Trump as it relates to National Security Issues.

There’s an -interesting- nugget I found in @CamAnalytica Case Study for:@realDonaldTrump Make America Number 1 PAC
You BETCHA it’s archived too

John Bolton PAC FEC ID C00542431, which spent >$400K with Strategic Campaign Group. Which is interesting to me, given on May 11, 2017 the FBI raided their offices.
So @LouiseMensch is it logical to assume that the campaigns who paid Strategic Campaign Group (FYI they have multiple offices) should be totally worried given the FBI raided their offices last May?— SpicyFiles (@SpicyFiles) May 12, 2018
