Congressional sources said this week that Facebook Inc (FB.O) has been slow to cooperate.

The social media platform says that Russia-linked groups spent about $150,000 on political ads, including some promotions that mentioned either Donald Trump or Hillary Clinton by name. Facebook says these ads focused on divisive political issues, such as immigration and gun rights, in an apparent attempt to sow discord among the USA population.

Congress is also investigating Russia-linked ads on Twitter and Google. Several congressional committees, as well as special counsel Robert Mueller, are investigating Russian interference, including any potential collusion between Trump associates and Moscow.

"Facebook owes the American people an apology". USA officials have called it a "troll factory" that creates false identities or copies real ones to spread real, skewed, and fake information for the Kremlin.

Facebook has admitted it shouldn't have allowed fake Russian accounts to fund ads supporting Trump in the U.S. election and will do everything in its power to help authorities get to the bottom of the alleged election interference campaign.
