Washington CNN  — 

Former White House chief strategist Steve Bannon said Thursday that he “doesn’t remember” purchasing personal information from Facebook while working for the data firm Cambridge Analytica.

Following his appearance at the Financial Times’ “Future of News” conference in New York on Thursday afternoon, CNN’s Dana Bash asked if Bannon, who once served as a Cambridge Analytica vice president, knew the firm was using personal information from Facebook.

“That Facebook data, by the way, is for sale all over the world,” Bannon responded, later adding, “I don’t remember buying it. That was the Cambridge guy.”
