Leaked chat logs reveal how the former lead psychologist for Cambridge Analytica has been working behind the scenes with a notorious anti-vaccine group in the U.K.

The chat records, provided to the Daily Dot by the activist collective DDoSecrets, detail efforts by HART (Health Advisory and Recovery Team), a self-described "group of highly qualified UK doctors, scientists, economists, psychologists and other academic experts," to influence politicians on issues related to COVID-19.

The leak, as first reported by Logically on Tuesday, involves tens of thousands of chat messages stretching back to January before the group's official launch. Held over the messaging platform Rocket.Chat, the communications highlight a stark contrast between HART's public attempts to portray itself professionally and some of its members' conspiratorial views.
