Richard BurrRichard Mauze BurrLawmakers grapple with warrantless wiretapping program Facebook under fire over Russian ads in election 5 senators call for USA to shutter embassy in Havana MORE (R-N.C.), chairman of the Senate Intelligence Committee, stopped short of endorsing a January intelligence assessment that claimed Moscow intervened on behalf of Trump during the presidential election.
Facebook Inc plans to hire 1,000 more people to review ads and ensure they meet its terms, as part of an effort to deter Russian Federation and other countries from using the social media network to interfere in others' elections, it said on Monday.
Burr said the committee has determined that the firing of former Federal Bureau of Investigation director James Comey is outside of their jurisdiction, and he also said that there was more work to be done to figure out whether anyone in President Trump's orbit colluded with the Russians previous year. The disclosure has added fuel to the findings of United States intelligence officials that Russian Federation was involved in influencing Trump's race against Hillary Clinton. CNN reported Wednesday that some of the ads specifically targeted MI and Wisconsin, two states that were critical to President Donald Trump's victory.
The company made the announcement after turning over 3,000 ads to congressional investigators examining Russian interference in the USA election.
Facebook has not made the ads public, but said that they have identified about 3,000 ads, primarily those that are issue-oriented rather than advocating for a specific candidate.
After interviewing more than 100 witnesses and a thousand times as many pages of documents, the Senate Intelligence Committee has not ruled out that the Trump campaign colluded with Russian Federation to interfere in the 2016 election campaign, and has a lot more probing to do, committee leaders said Wednesday.
"The issue of collusion is still open", the committee's Republican chairman, Richard Burr of North Carolina, told a room full of reporters in the Capitol. "[It's] not a practice that we're going to get into".
Facebook said last month that it believed people in Russian Federation bought about 3,000 politically divisive ads on its network in the United States in the months before and after the November U.S. presidential election. He did not elaborate, except to say that the committee had not come to any conclusions and that the investigation is ongoing.
"We have not come to any determination on collusion or Russia's preferences", Burr said.
Google officials said in a statement Friday that they are looking for evidence of Russian meddling within their system, but have not announced any findings.
