Trump Consultants Caught Red Handed Plotting Sex Trafficking, Bribery, and Blackmail

Trump Consultants Caught Red Handed Plotting Sex Trafficking, Bribery, and Blackmail

In a shocking undercover video sting by Britain’s Channel 4 News, top executives of Cambridge Analytica, the political consultancy which the Trump Campaign hired for the 2016 presidential election, are caught on camera plotting to provide decidedly illegal and corrupt services to an undercover reporter they believe is the agent of a wealthy family trying to influence Sri Lankan politics. The firm has also been implicated this week in a Facebook data breach which compromised the data of 50 million Facebook users.

In the stunning undercover video captured by Channel 4, the CEO of the British company, Andrew Nix, told the reporters that his company works in elections all around the world. Often employing sub-contractors, or front operations. He told the undercover reporter that some of the strategies they like employ include entrapment, bribery, and honey-pot operations using prostitutes, specifically mentioning “Ukranian girls” trafficked for the purpose.

Asked by the undercover reporter, masquerading as the agent of a wealthy Sri Lankan family looking to get candidates under their sway elected, about the possibility of digging up dirt on rival candidates, Nix suggested, “We’ll offer a large amount of money to the candidate to finance his campaign, in exchange for land for instance,” Nix said. “We’ll have the whole thing recorded on cameras. We’ll blank out the face of our guy, and then post it on the Internet.” Which, ironically, was exactly what was about to happen to them.

Nix elaborated, adding that they could “send some girls around to the candidate’s house,” noting that “we have lots of history of things.”

Asked by the fake Sri Lankan political operative if they would use local girls for the “seduction”, Nix had an even more shocking answer.

“I wouldn’t have thought so,” Nix began, before adding that was one idea. Another idea, he proposed, was “we could bring some Ukranians in, on holiday with us… You know” Nix said, alluding to trafficking sex workers, “you know what I’m saying?”

“They’re very beautiful, Ukranian girls,” the undercover reporter offered, playing along.

“They are very beautiful,” Nix replied, “I find that works very well.” He then goes on to say that these are just examples of “what can be done, and what, what has been done.”

In another shocking segment of the video, in which the Channel 4 operative makes their second contact with two of the top executives of Cambridge Analytical, Chief Data Officer Alex Taylor, and Managing Director Mark Turnbull, Turnbull brags about a campaign in Kenya. The campaign, where the firm used misinformation campaigns designed to fear-monger to carefully targeted groups, led to an outbreak of violence.

Turnbull took credit for “just about every element of his campaign.” Because of the violence Cambridge Analytica doesn’t say much about the Kenyatta campaigns of 2013 and 2017. But it was, as the Channel 4 narrator put it, clearly a “source of evident pride” for Turnbull, behind closed doors.

In yet another meeting, Turnbull told the Channel 4 reporter that they use organizations of former spies to “find all the skeletons” in an opponent’s closet, secretly, and then release it at a key moment. When the dirt is released, Turnbull said, “it has to happen without anyone thinking, ‘that’s propaganda‘. Because the moment you think ‘that’s propaganda’ the next question is, ‘who put that out?’. So we have to be very subtle.”

And as for keeping the involvement of Cambridge Analytica and it’s spies, and illegal tactics a secret, Turbull told the reporter, “it may be that we have to contract under a different name… A different entity, a different name. So that no record exists with our name attached to this at all.”

Nix also touched on this point, going further even than Turbull, saying, “many of our clients don’t want to be seen to be working with a foreign company…” Nix elaborated, saying, “…we can set up fake IDs and websites, we can be students doing research projects attached to a university, we can be tourists. There’s so many options we can look at. I have lots of experience in this.”

In a statement issued after the exposé aired in the UK, Cambridge Analytica denied all wrongdoing.

“We entirely refute any allegation that Cambridge Analytica or any of its affiliates use entrapment, bribes, or so-called “honey-traps” for any purpose whatsoever,” a spokesperson said. “We routinely undertake conversations with prospective clients to try to tease out any unethical or illegal intentions.” Also insisting, “Cambridge Analytica does not use untrue material for any purpose.”

But that is NOT what their top executives said when they let their guard down, on camera.
