Facebook handed over detailed records to special counsel Robert Mueller and his team, about the Russian ads that appeared on Facebook during the election. The information Facebook shared with Mr Mueller included copies of the ads, and details about the accounts that bought them and the targeting criteria they used, officials said. Facebook told lawmakers last week that it identified about 3,000 ads that were linked to fake accounts.
