From the linked AP article:
Julian Assange says on Twitter that Cambridge Analytica reached out to his group prior to last November, but Wikileaks rejected the company’s “approach.” Assange isn’t specifying the content of that approach.
So ... Trust Assange SOMETIMES but not now? Why not NOW?
Seems to me that you guys didn't believe him when he said that all the corrupt DNC emails didn't come from Russia.
They "technically" didn't.
Ever heard of hiring a CONTRACTOR?
Being BEHIND something and being directly involved are "technically" not the same thing.
Doesn't mean that Russia didn't plan and support the hack that obtained them.
Such 2-D thinking...
You see...hiring an AMERICAN company for opposition research on your OPPONENT is OK. . . Conducting business with a wanted criminal intelligence leaking group is kind of different...

So I guess this is the start of Russia trying to pull the plug on Trump? It's a win for them, regardless, since their goal has always been to destabilize the U.S.

I don't know a single person who thinks "Yay all my personal information and internet history is being used to target me by whatever institution decides to buy me information." No. Nobody likes it, but we don't have control over the laws allowing it. We're literally being bought and sold as information everywhere and we have no choice.
In Latvia, SCL said it ran a campaign in 2006 designed to stoke tensions between Latvians and ethnic Russian residents: “In essence, Russians were blamed for unemployment and other problems affecting the economy,” an SCL document said. Nix confirms the firm’s role, saying that its research found that such tensions would “influence voting behavior.”
According to documents seen by Bloomberg, SCL says it helped a candidate in Trinidad by spraying graffiti slogans that appeared to be the work of young Trinidadians. “The client was then able to ‘adopt’ related policies and claim credit for listening to a ‘united youth,’ ” SCL documents show.
SCL’s original description of its work in Nigeria echoes some of those concerns. According to a 2016 version of its website, SCL advised the PDP to try to dissuade opposition supporters from voting. This was achieved, the website said, “by organizing anti-poll rallies on the day of the election.” SCL later revised its website to say it “advised its client to focus on discrediting their opponent’s electoral policy platform … by organizing rallies on the day of the election to highlight those shortcomings.” Without saying why the web wording changed, Nix denies that SCL has ever “undertaken any campaign to discourage voting or undermine the democratic process.” A party spokesman, Olisa Metuh, said he wasn’t aware of SCL’s work and couldn’t comment.
