Christopher Wylie, a former Cambridge Analytica employee who blew the whistle on its alleged misuse of Facebook data, told the Senate Judiciary Committee that the company offered services to discourage voting from targeted sections of the American population.

Cambridge Analytica, got the negative media coverage after it was found that the company was involved in Donald Trump's election campaign where it is alleged that it compromised on private information of 87 million Facebook users.

In an interview with CNN after his testimony, Wylie said that Bannon, who held a position on the firm's board before joining the Trump campaign, directed the firm to research suppressing the vote among black Americans.

Cambridge Analytica announced it will begin bankruptcy proceedings after losing clients, facing mounting legal fees over Facebook scandal.

"Mr. Bannon sees cultural warfare as the means to create enduring change in American politics".

Tencent advances revenues 48%, profit over 60% in Q1
Tencent's gaming business has historically done well, with the PC games segment being the company's cash cow for a long time. A major contributor to the bottomline was investments by Tencent , which brought in 7.6 billion yuan in gains.

That information is then used to "discourage or demobilize certain types of people from voting", he added, including African-Americans, which Wylie says were particular targets of the operations.

Asked outside the hearing if he's been questioned in Special Counsel Robert Mueller's inquiry into Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential election, Wylie replied, "All I can say is I have been contacted by the Federal Bureau of Investigation".

Wylie told the panel that "the ethos of the firm was "anything goes" for its political campaigns, including "attempting to divert health ministry funds in a struggling African country to support a politician's re-election campaign".

Asked by Sen. Chris Coons (D-DE) if one of Bannon's "goals was to suppress voting or discourage certain individuals in the United States from voting", Wylie replied, "That was my understanding, yes".
