Cambridge Analytica Whistleblower: My Predecessor Was Poisoned

Cambridge Analytica whistleblower Chris Wylie's testimony before the culture select committee of MPs has been nothing short of shocking. But perhaps the most disturbing claim made by the former Cambridge Analytica data scientist was that his predecessor was murdered in Kenya after a mysterious "influence brokering" deal went sour.

Wylie told the committee that he wasn't aware of his predecessor or his fate when he arrived at Cambridge in 2012. But shortly after, he was looking for a file that would've been maintained by his predecessor. During the course of looking for the file, another employee told him about the rumors. Wylie's predecessor, Dan Muresan, the son of a former Romanian minister of agriculture who is now imprisoned, was found dead in 2012, according to the Daily Mail.

Wylie said his predecessor had been working for President Uhuru Kenyatta's re-election campaign when he was found dead.

'Dan was my predecessor....what I heard was that he was working on some kind of deal of some sort - I'm not sure what.

'The deal went sour.

'People suspected he was poisoned in his hotel room. I also heard that the police had got bribed not to enter the hotel room for 24 hours.'

He added: 'That is what I was told - I was not there so I speak to the veracity of it.

Muresan was the son of former Romanian Agriculture Minister Ioan Avram Muresan, who is now in prison for corruption charges.

According to a report of his death which ran in 2012 in the Bucharest Herald, the 32 year-old had studied at the LSE in London and had coordinated election campaigns in Europe, Africa and the US.

Romania's Foreign Ministry told the Bucharest Herald at the time: The Romanian citizen was working with a British telecommunications company, being in Kenya for a while.

He had not yet registered his presence on Kenyan territory with the Romanian diplomatic mission.

When the police finally arrived, Muresan's body was taken for an autopsy. It's unclear if the death was even investigated as a homicide.  

During his lengthy appearance, Wylie made other extreme claims, including corroborating earlier reports that SCL Group - Cambridge Analytica's parent company - had contracted with an Israeli private security firm to steal emails and other kompromat to be used against Nigerian President Muhammadu Buhari, who was running for president at the time.

Wylie then compared his former company's work in Africa to the practice of colonialism.

Describing how SCL operates, Mr Wylie said: 'You can be a colonial master in these was very much like a privatized colonial operation'

He also claimed that Alexander Nix, CA's chief executive, set up a fake office in Cambridge in a bid to woo Steve Bannon.

He claimed that Nix was very wealthy, saying "you have to remember that a lot of these people are very wealthy already."

"Alexander Nix in particular - there was one time when we were running late because he had to pick up a £200,000 chandelier.

These are people who don't need to make a lot of money, but the thing that I learned is that for certain wealthy people, they need something to keep them occupied and they need projects."

"Going into the developing world and running a country is something that appeals to them."

So what was the poison?  Whoever developed it... THAT'S your guilty party!

It must be, because Theresa May knows about these things...

Is there a reason why this Wylie chap, who's a Canuck, has not been charged with foreign interference in an American election or as a foreign enemy combatant, I mean he just told the committee Cambridge was a "military-style information operation"?


"I wouldn't say it was just because of Donald Trump, but Donald Trump makes it click in your head that this actually has a much wider impact. I don't think that military-style information operations is conducive for any democratic process," he told the committee of lawmakers.

Uh - Sarin was invented in the 1938 by IG Farben.  The name comes from the initials of the last names of the four inventors.




von der Linde

The Nazis made about 10 tons to use for Chemical Warfare, but never used it.  The US, USSR, and NATO made Sarin chemical weapons in the 1950s.

That's a bonus point for you - I meant to write VX!  Don't know why I wrote sarin... the V-series of nerve agents was discovered and developed by ICI from the early 1950s; VX was first produced in large amounts in 1961.  I won't bother to edit my earlier comment as that would leave your comment without context.

Thanks for pointing that out.

2012 - someone with intimate knowledge of the future was obviously getting rid of people to grease the skids for Trump's election, even before he knew he was running.

Who gave the DeLaurean keys to Putin?

Also, are they trying to parallel the Seth Rich story, just to muddy the waters.  As a poster said earlier - it's getting really hard to discern the signal from the (mostly deliberate) noise.

A few days ago I posted an awesome interview of Adam Garrie about Cambridge Analytica .

He was talking about the involvement of Mo666ad spies , social media,including Facebook ,UK/US government ,Clinton,Therese may ,even The Donald , into this organization interfering into ALL elections. Last year ,the Donald State Department invested 150 Mil into CA.

This video disappeared from the net .

UK tied to cover it up: delayed the search warrant for weeks,then CA building received a package with a "bomb" and had to be evacuated. The usual BS.

It seems that there are many Whistleblowers.

Ask yourself these questions:

- why did this video disappear ?

-why isn't the Donald tweeting anything about CA ?

This is a huge scandal . When was about to come to light ,the Skripal case happened . Possible done to divert attention. Plus try transform Russia into a rogue nation.

Two birds with a M!6 /C!A stone.

The fact that the media continues to give the mentally ill a platform from which to puke its bile is worse than the puking itself. It's to the point where the Govt Media is mocking the public with the incessant flow of pink haired pussy faggot shit. Enough already.

Orange hair is the signal that's it's all a ruse.

Orange is the only color whose numerology is 33.

33 is the hoax code.

When they're trying to distract you to look in one direction is really when you should be checking out the other direction.
