Alexander Nix is the chief executive of Cambridge Analytica.

Damian Collins MP, the chair of the culture committee, has written to Facebook's chief executive to formally request that he appear before them in an oral evidence session.

London-based SCL, Cambridge's parent company, has said it has worked in 100 countries, including serving military clients with techniques in "soft power", or persuasion. I urge the Committee to get to the bottom of these questions by holding hearings on these matters, compelling the production of documents as well as the attendance of relevant witnesses.

The research conducted in Russia, in association with Kogan, included informed consent requirements that are standard for academic research.

His intervention came after a whistleblower spoke to the Observer and described how the profiles, mostly of US voters, were harvested for Cambridge Analytica, in one of Facebook's biggest ever data breaches. They just cannot accept the fact that Hillary was such an unpopular, such a divisive candidate. We have some explanations of what this whole situation is about, even as it continues to evolve.
