Secretary of the Navy nominee may have had undisclosed contract with Cambridge Analytica, documents suggest

Documents apparently generated by Cambridge Analytica suggest that the political consulting firm had a contractual relationship with Kenneth Braithwaite in the year before he was nominated to be U.S. Ambassador to Norway in 2017.

Braithwaite, who President Trump has said will be his nominee for Secretary of the Navy, made no mention of an agreement in his required government disclosure form, and says he never entered one.

Braithwaite was required to disclose every paid and unpaid position he held outside government within the two prior calendar years before the Senate confirmed him to be ambassador. A willful failure to include a job or consulting position on the Office of Government Ethics Form 278e can be a violation of federal law. Braithwaite denies any relationship with Cambridge Analytica that would require this disclosure.

The documents indicate that Braithwaite was under contract from November 1, 2016 through October 31, 2017. Mr. Trump nominated Braithwaite to be Ambassador to Norway on October 19, 2017.
