Facebook gave more info to Mueller on Russian ad buys than to Congress: report

Facebook Gave Special Counsel Robert Mueller More Details on Russian Ad Buys Than Congress

The ads, which were linked to a "Russian troll farm", targeted American Facebook users, and thus more information about them could drastically affect Mueller's decision on whether Moscow collaborated with President Donald Trump's campaign team. Secondly, the prosecutor must show that the information sought by the investigation will provide evidence of the crime.

Mariotti believes this indicates that Mueller is "closing in on charging foreign individuals in connection with that, which is much more like the sort of thing I think lot of people speculated could come from the Mueller investigation, but frankly we hadn't seen up until now".

Facebook said in its initial statement that about 25% of the ads purchased by Russians during the election "were geographically targeted", and many analysts have found it hard to believe that foreign entities would have had the kind of granular knowledge of American politics necessary to target specific demographics and voting precincts.

The fact that Mueller obtained a warrant means he's already made a strong case for Russia's meddling with the election.

In late July, the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) conducted a raid on Paul Manafort's home who is a Trump's former campaign chairman.

Mueller got the records after obtaining a search warrant for information on the fake accounts that Facebook said it shut down.

Federal Bureau of Investigation is also said to be investigating Manafort's financial history and overseas business dealings as part of its probe into possible collusion between the campaign and Moscow. "For example, if somebody knew about the Russian operation and helped it succeed, they could also be criminally liable", he said. Rangappa said this reveals two key pieces of information. "If any Trump associate knew about the foreign contributions that Mueller's search warrant focused on and helped that effort in a tangible way, they could be charged".

Sen. Mark Warner, the Virginia Democrat who co-chairs the Senate Intelligence Committee, said last week that Twitter officials would soon talk with congressional investigators about Russian activity on its platform, the Journal reported.
