Justice Department, FBI Investigating Cambridge Analytica

The Department of Justice and the FBI are investigating the now inoperative Cambridge Analytica data firm that worked for President Donald Trump’s campaign and gained notoriety for harvesting private data from millions of Facebook users, The New York Times reported Tuesday.

According to an American official and people familiar with the investigation who spoke with the Times, the DOJ and FBI have tried to question former employees and banks that the company did business with in recent weeks.

The investigation is reportedly in its early stages and investigators primarily want to get a handle on Cambridge Analytica’s business practices. The probe in the U.S. is focused mainly on the company’s finances and how it was able to gather and use personal data from more than 50 million Facebook users, according to the Times. The DOJ has also contacted Facebook as part of the probe, according to the U.S. official who spoke with the Times.

Earlier this month, the company said it would declare bankruptcy.
