The former Cambridge Analytica contractor told CNN’s Hala Gorani on Monday that he wants to “work together” with the company, and was frustrated when his Facebook (FB) and Instagram accounts were suspended.

“They committed to me in writing that they wanted to have an open and collaborative approach,” he told Gorani. “And now they turn around, and drop this press release that says that I’m being suspended.”

Wylie was a data analyst for Cambridge Analytica, the controversial data firm that worked for President Donald Trump’s campaign. The company reportedly gained access to information about 50 million Facebook (FB) users — news that has cast heavy scrutiny on the social media giant over the past few days.
