Posted on 09/21/2017 7:18:07 PM PDT by Kaslin
Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg said the social network would hand over to Congress the political ads purchased by Russian operatives.
On his first day back from paternity leave, Zuckerberg held a Facebook Live chat and said the company would "strengthen our ad review process for political ads."
One senior source familiar with discussions told Fox News there is a deal with Facebook. However, another senior source close to the negotiation disputes that, saying there is no agreement on the breadth of material Facebook may provide.
FACEBOOK REVAMPS POLICIES AFTER ANTI-SEMITIC AD-TARGETING SCANDAL
Separately on Thursday, Facebook wrote a blog post outlining the steps it would be taking.
After an extensive legal and policy review, today we are announcing that we will also share these ads with congressional investigators, wrote Colin Stretch, the companys general counsel. We believe it is vitally important that government authorities have the information they need to deliver to the public a full assessment of what happened in the 2016 election.

Russia’s... and no one else’s.
“Just look at Russia please!”
What a bunch of ca ca
Good. Let's keep reminding people that these Russian "fake news" ads on Facebook were the ones hammering Hillary about her deleted emails and her Clinton Foundation slush fund shenanigans.
I do not trust Zuckerberg
“10 things that beautiful Russian girls think about Trump! Click now!”
Just as an aside: I wonder what the Russian counterparts to the ads for Russian brides are like? Do they advertise rich, fat and lonely American men seeking women?
Neither do I
They ought to put them all out for everyone to see.
Were they pro or never Trump?
I don’t know. I never get my news from Facebook LOL
Hillary spent 1.3 billion on her campaign, but somehow 100,000 in Facebook ads was enough to turn the election? I think Hillary didn’t spend her money wisely.
This whole thing sounds bogus to me. First of all $100 K on Facebook is a phone call to an account manager. Secondly negative stuff on Trump has been leaking like a sieve, and if these ads WERE PUBLIC ADS, why haven’t we seen them?
More than likely there were more anti-Trump ads than anti-Hillary ads.
These ads could be scam ads, preying on anyone who clicks one.
I don’t trust Russian or Chinese websites. They are crawling with scammers.
The whole gist of the supposed Trump/Russia collusion was that they colluded to get the truth out about Hillary and the Democrats. Clearly, the Democrats want to hide who they are and want us to vote for, basically, a pig in a poke.
Logically, the collusion story makes no sense. Russia already knew it could get whatever it wanted from Hillary if it paid her sufficiently. She even compromised national security for a pay out from Russia. Why on earth would Russia then turn against her campaign? [Actually, the Trump/Russia collusion claim was just another Democrat misdirection attempt—since they always accuse their opponents of doing what the Dems are actually doing.]
There was no collusion with Russia because there was nothing to collude about. There was no hack of the DNC. Technical experts have proven the information had to come from the inside. A leak, not a hack.
From an article quoting the VIPS Experts:
“Investigators found that 1,976 megabytes of data were downloaded locally on July 5, 2016. The information was downloaded with a memory key or some other portable storage device. The download operation took 87 seconds meaning the speed of transfer was 22.7 megabytes per second a speed that far exceeds an internet capability for a remote hack, as Lawrence puts it. Whats more, they say, a transoceanic transfer would have been even slower (Guccifer claimed to be working from Romania).
Based on the data we now have, what weve been calling a hack is impossible, Folden told The Nation.
The other day I told him: No one is telling me what to buy.
The Winklevoss twins found out the hard way Zuckerberg can’t be trusted.
