The Latest: Cambridge Analytica links to Blackwater founder | The Washington Post |

Of course Cambridge Analytica was in a way linked to Cambridge and Alexander Nix ... with new corporate change to Emerdata, do the Mercers give recognition to Abu Dhabi Sheikh of the Emirates? Should we ask Erik Prince?

Cambridge Analytica founders have set up a new London-based Data Company Emerdata

The founders and funders of controversial election consultants Cambridge Analytica are behind a new company registered in London appearing to offer similar services.

Executives at Cambridge Analytica (CA) and parent company SCL Group registered Emerdata Limited as a data processing company last summer but they have since listed directors linked to private military contractors, secretive political meetings and the Trump administration.

Rebekah and Jennifer Mercer, daughters of the billionaire Robert Mercer who funded Cambridge Analytica, its parent company SCL Group and Donald Trump's election campaign, were officially registered as directors of the company on Tuesday, the same day CA chief executive Alexander Nix was suspended from his role for comments made to journalists posing as prospective clients.

Also named as a director of Emerdata is 66-year-old Hong Kong businessman Johnson Chun Shun Ko, a close associate of Erik Prince, founder of private military contractor Blackwater, which secured hundreds of millions in government contracts for private military operations during the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.

Mr Ko serves as deputy chairman for Frontier Services Group Limited, a company which describes itself as a 'Africa-focused security, aviation and logistics company' and is led by Mr Prince, its chairman.
