The plan was announced one day after Special Counsel Robert Mueller unveiled indictments against 13 Russians who used Facebook, among other American social media sites, to attempt to influence the outcome of the 2016 presidential election.

The postcard verification is Facebook's latest effort to respond to criticism from lawmakers, security experts and election integrity watchdog groups that it and other social media companies failed to detect and later responded slowly to Russia's use of their platforms to spread divisive political content, including disinformation, during the 2016 USA presidential election.

The National Security Advisor to the Trump administration, H.R. McMaster has said to a delegation of worldwide dignitaries that evidence tabled against Russian interference in the presidential elections was incontrovertible.

Trump reissued a common complaint, accusing his predecessor of ignoring Russian cyberattacks because he thought Democrat Hillary Clinton would win the election.

White House deputy press secretary Raj Shah went to bat for Donald Trump today, touting the president as a man who stands up to Vladimir Putin.

The Kremlin on Monday denied interference in the US election, days after USA special counsel Robert Mueller indicted 13 Russian nationals and three Russian entities with conducting an illegal "information warfare" campaign to disrupt the election to help Trump win.

On Saturday, President Trump brought attention to a New York Post column that labeled Russian indictment as "a big win" for Donald Trump.

Trump also claimed on Tuesday he's "been tougher on Russian Federation than Obama". Last Friday's indictments did not implicate any Trump aides. Given how narrowly Trump won the election (by approximately 107,000 votes in three swing states), it is not a stretch to say Russian involvement had some level of impact, although it probably didn't swing the election.

During his presidency, Obama issued a number of sanctions against Russia, expelled 35 Russian diplomats from the US and ordered two Russian compounds closed, according to The Hill.

Twitter made a decision to deal with the effects of Russian meddling by deleting the tweets from Russian troll accounts.

Instead, what has been revealed, is that at the core of the allegations that Trump colluded with Russian Federation is opposition research paid for by the Clinton Campaign and the Democratic National Committee.

Stone said Facebook was also able to detect and remove "tens of thousands" of fake Facebook pages in advance of French, German and British elections past year using improved machine learning techniques.
