Mueller’s special counsel interviewed Facebook staff in their continued witch hunt on President Donald Trump...

THE DEPARTMENT OF Justice's special counsel Robert Mueller and his office have interviewed at least one member of Facebook's team that was associated with President Trump's 2016 presidential campaign, according to a person familiar with the matter.

The interview was part of Mueller's probe into Russian interference in the 2016 election and what role, if any, the Trump campaign played in that interference. Facebook and other social platforms have emerged as a key part of that investigation, not only because the company embedded staff with the San Antonio-based digital team working on Trump's campaign, but also because it sold more than 3,000 Facebook and Instagram ads to fake accounts linked to the Russian propaganda group Internet Research Agency. All in, content shared by those accounts reached 126 million Facebook users, including more than 62,000 of whom signed up to attend events organized by those fake accounts.

A spokesperson for the special counsel's office declined WIRED's request for comment.

Mueller's team speaking with a Facebook employee does not necessarily implicate Facebook in any wrongdoing. It's natural that a company not only close to the campaign, but also directly impacted by Russian active members, would be on Mueller's radar.

Special counsel Robert Mueller’s staff has interviewed at least one member of a Facebook team associated with President Donald Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign, according to a new report in Wired, which cited a person familiar with the matter.

The interview was part of Mueller’s Department of Justice probe into Russian interference in the 2016 U.S. election and what role, if any, the Trump campaign played in it, the report said.

The report comes a day after Facebook said, in written replies provided to the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence, that it found “insignificant overlap” between the targeting efforts of Trump’s campaign and that of a Russian propaganda unit called the Internet Research Agency.

Facebook also said in those replies, prompted by questions during a November 1 hearing on the matter, that it has been providing investigators, including those in Congress, with information it has regarding the scope and nature of Russian information operations.

That echoed a September post from CEO Mark Zuckerberg, who said the company had shared what it had found with Meuller’s probe.

“We are actively working with the U.S. government on its ongoing investigations into Russian interference…When we recently uncovered this activity, we provided that information to the special counsel,” Zuckerberg wrote then.

In November the House Intelligence Committe released several Facebook ads and posts linked to a Russian troll operation during and after the 2016 presidential election.
Democrats want you to believe these Russian Facebook ads flipped the election to Donald Trump.

People Without GOD Are Treacherous…

"It is better to be divided by truth than to be united in error. It is better to speak the truth that hurts and then heals, than falsehood that comforts and then kills. Let me tell you something, friend, it is not love and it is not friendship if we fail to declare the whole counsel of God. It is better to be hated for telling the truth, than to be loved for telling a lie. It is impossible to find anyone in the Bible who was a power for God who did not have enemies and was not hated. It’s better to stand alone with the truth, than to be wrong with a multitude. It is better to ultimately succeed with the truth than to temporarily succeed with a lie. There is only one Gospel and Paul said, ‘If any man preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed.”
