FACEBOOK’s Zuckerberg holds LIVE event: sharing Russia data with Congress (video)


BREAKING — Facebook, the largest social media network on planet earth, announced Thursday that it has cut a deal with congressional investigators to turn over advertisements purchased by Kremlin-linked groups during the 2016 presidential campaign.

The company in a public statement confirmed it would release details associated with advertisements.

Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg held a live event on his own Facebook page which drew tens of thousands of viewers at 3:30pm EST Thursday “to discuss Facebook’s next steps protecting election integrity.”

Facebook has been criticized by lawmakers, such as the top Democrat on the Senate Intelligence Committee Mark Warner (Va.), for not revealing enough information about the extent of Russian activity to potentially influence the election via its platform.

Facebook revealed earlier this month that Russian actors purchased $100,000 in political ads during the 2016 race, but has remained tight-lipped about further details.
