London-based Cambridge Analytica, which has counted U.S. President Donald Trump's 2016 campaign among its clients, disputed Facebook's estimate of affected users.
Christopher Wylie, a whistleblower who worked with the UK-based Cambridge Analytica, said that AggregateIQ once received payment from the pro-Brexit campaign ahead of the 2016 United Kingdom referendum on ending its membership of the European Union.
