Andreessen Horowitz investor and Facebook board member Marc Andreessen has denied claims he met the Cambridge Analytica whistleblower Chris Wylie in 2016.




The Observer reported that Andreessen hosted a meeting to determine how Cambridge Analytica might be misusing people's data.




If true, the meeting suggests Facebook understood the extent of Cambridge Analytica's data harvesting almost two years before the scandal broke publicly.




But Andreessen says he's never met Wylie, and Facebook said it had no record of the meeting.



A prominent Silicon Valley investor and Facebook board member has denied claims that he met with a Cambridge Analytica representative as early as 2016.
The Observer reported that Marc Andreessen, a founding partner at VC firm Andreessen Horowitz and current Facebook board member, hosted a meeting with former Cambridge Analytica employee Chris Wylie over concerns about the way the political consultancy was manipulating people's data.
The meeting, the newspaper reported, took place at Andreessen Horowitz's offices in 2016, just as Cambridge Analytica began work on Donald Trump's presidential campaign.
