The Securities Exchange Commission, Federal Trade Commission and Federal Bureau of Investigation have joined in the probe, according to the Post. In March, Facebook disclosed that Cambridge Analytica, a digital consultancy which had ties to the Trump presidential campaign, improperly accessed personal information on up to 87 million Facebook users.”
