    Facebook insiders sold a large bundle of shares 3 days after its initial public offering, insider trading, including:
    James Breyer and Accel Partners;
    The number 1 Facebook insider trader Accel in reality is controlled by "Britain’s richest man" Sir Len Blavatnik. Blavatnik is the founder of Access Industries that now owns Warner Music Group.
    Blavatnik and Viktor Vekselberg hold a 15.8% joint stake in the Rusal of Nat Rothschild's friend and business partner Oleg Deripaska.

    In April 2017, Blavatnik’s Access Entertainment purchased James Packer’s ownership share of RatPac Entertainment.
    RatPac is a partner in RatPac-Dune Entertainment with Dune Entertainment, which was led by Goldman Sachs, Bonesman Steven Mnuchin. Since 2006, Dune partnered with Warner Brothers and Fox Filmed Entertainment (of Rothschild agent Rupert Murdoch).
    Mnuchin sold his stake before becoming Treasury Secretary without disclosing to whom.

    Mnuchin was also co-chairman of movie company Relativity Media (co-owned by Brett Ratner and Packer), which distributed or financed nearly 200 motion pictures that were nominated for 60 Oscars.
    In 2007, then Senator Hillary Clinton threw a fundraising party at Brett Ratner’s home, whose guest lists have included Paris Hilton (also close to Donald Trump).
    In 2012, prominent Democratic fundraiser Ron Burkle purchased a large stake in Relativity. Bill Clinton has flown on his buddy Burkle’s private Boeing 757 that some refer to as “Air $#@! One.”

    Benjamin Netanyahu has been suspected of fraud and bribes from Los Angeles producer Arnon Milchan, Australian billionaire James Packer, and others. Netanyahu’s son Yair flew on Packer’s private jet and stayed in hotels at Packer’s expense:

    On 19 December, Karl Racine, attorney general of the District of Columbia, filed a court case against Facebook for violating the privacy of 340,000 residents. The district attorney said the maximum penalty is $5,000 "per violation". It is not clear what a single violation is, according to the law, but it means that Facebook could face a fine of up to $1.7 billion (for Columbia alone).
    Predictably Facebook’s shares took a plunge after this news hit the press.

    In 2013, Facebook allowed Aleksandr Kogan, and his Global Science Research (GSR), affiliated with England's Cambridge University, to launch an app on Facebook called "thisisyourdigitallife". The app offered to generate a personality profile in exchange for access to their Facebook data. Although only 852 Facebook users in Columbia installed Kogan's app, it also collected information on all of their Facebook friends who didn’t give permission — amounting to nearly half of all its residents.
    GSR sold the information to Cambridge Analytica, which used it in the 2016 presidential campaigns to target voters.

    AG Racine wrote in his statement:
    Facebook failed to protect the privacy of its users and deceived them about who had access to their data and how it was used.
    Facebook put users at risk of manipulation by allowing companies like Cambridge Analytica and other third-party applications to collect personal data without users’ permission. Today's lawsuit is about making Facebook live up to its promise to protect its users' privacy.
