Two Russian state institutions with close ties to Vladimir Putin funded substantial investments in Twitter and Facebook through a business associate of Jared Kushner, leaked documents reveal.
The investments were made through a Russian technology magnate, Yuri Milner, who also holds a stake in a company co-owned by Kushner, Donald Trumps son-in-law and senior White House adviser.
The discovery is likely to stir concerns over Russian influence in US politics and the role played by social media in last years presidential election. It may also raise new questions for the social media companies and for Kushner.

Guilt by association.
Giant nothing burger.
If both twitter and Facebook werent aware that purchased if the stock were a shell company owned by Russia then there is no political influence either.
The only political influence here is, again, a continuing coup to try to overthrow the legally and constitutionally elected government of the US.
It’s the Guardian...they look for connections on the right. Closer examination will reveal the Russians played both sides of the fence. That’s how they operate.
Focus will shift to Facebook and Twitter...giving both US political parties cover.
The political parties here arent involved - if any are the DNC was and is until Trump won.
Did they get any uranium out of the deal?
They try to smear Wilbur Ross as well. He has already given a clear answer - nothing to see here. Unfortunately, people from the Bush-sphere are wringing their hands and bringing forth the smellng salts, so it is not just the libs and the euro-socialists that are on to this so called story.
They are coming for Ross over Navigator holdings connected to putin family
No idea if they will get anywhere with it.
Bushes have taken a double shot this weekend. They’ve been the Saudis bag men for three generations. No one knows where the musical chairs end over there right now.
W is going to start drinking again before this is over. Especially if Trump pushes for who let the Bin Laden family out of the US after 9/11.
I just wondering if they invested in McDonalds or Amazon or CNN? Gees... quick don’t look at that smoking pile of dung in the Democrat party.. someone invested in FaceBook and Twitter.. “OH THE HUMANITY!!!”
Official Saudi news agency down.
Gee, UK Guardian, let's hope.
The Guardian is as fake as the Slimes and CNN.
Twitter funded in 2011 ?
Russian companies invested in USA Companies ?
and Zuckerberg is friends with a Russian, Milner, who left Russia in 2012 and has been living in the U.S. since 2014 ?
and Milner contributed $850,000 from his family trust to a $50m investment in Cadre, a New-York-based company that Kushner co-founded in 2014 with his brother, Joshua, and a friend of theirs from Harvard.
and the trail begins in 2005 ?
so a long time ago, somebody knew somebody who knew somebody who was a Russian ?
rock solid stuff right there.
If Kushner was “in on it” as the left wants you to beleive then why were most of the adds AGAINST Pres Trump?
Nothing Burger. The favorite word used around here when everyone is in denial about what is going on and what the endgame is. Because Mueller hired 20 left wing attorneys not to go after Trump.
