Suspended Cambridge Analytica (CA) CEO Alexander Nix said his firm "ran all the digital campaign" for President Donald Trump and played a crucial role in Trump winning the electoral college by a margin of 40,000 votes in three states, reports the UK's Channel 4 News. While being secretly recorded by an undercover reporter, Nix and other CA executives discussed how they acted as a conduit between the Trump campaign and outside super PACs — which is illegal under U.S. election law.
