Now-closed data firm Cambridge Analytica under federal investigation: Report

The Justice Department and FBI are investigating Cambridge Analytica, the now-shuttered political data firm that was once used by the Trump campaign and came under scrutiny for harvesting data of millions of users, The New York Times reported on Tuesday.

The Cambridge Analytica data sharing scandal has prompted calls on Capitol Hill for stricter regulations of social media companies like Facebook, and entities that work with them, but so far, the Republican-led Congress has yet to move forward with any substantive changes.
