Facebook's Goldman Calls Russian Ads A Nothingburger, Turns Into A 'Shit Sandwich'

Facebook's Goldman Calls Russian Ads A Nothingburger, Turns Into A 'Shit Sandwich'

America is now waiting to see if Donald Trump's campaign had ties with Russian Federation, but the critical issue we need to focus on is why Vladmir Putin helped Trump.

Amid the continuing push by Democrats and the liberal mainstream media on Russian meddling in the 2016 USA presidential election, President Donald Trump trained his guns on his predecessor Barack Obama on Tuesday, virtually accusing him of inaction on that front.

"I'd advise Mr. Trump to stop whining and go try to make his case to get votes".

On Friday, Facebook's vice president of ads, Rob Goldman, tweeted that key facts about Russia's efforts to interfere in the 2016 U.S. election were "still not well understood".

Trump's tweet Tuesday included a quote from Obama saying in October 2016 that "there is no serious person out there who would suggest somehow that you could even rig America's elections". Under US federal law, non-American citizens are barred from using resources in form of money to influence the outcome of a mid-term or presidential election.

President Donald Trump said that Russian Federation was succeeding beyond its "wildest dreams" in sowing United States discord but refrained once more from directly challenging Moscow on its election meddling.

The president's hand was forced last Friday by special counsel Robert Mueller's release of 13 indictments of Russians for election meddling.

Report details alleged Trump affair with Playboy playmate Karen McDougal
In July, 2006, McDougal joined Trump at the American Century Celebrity Golf Championship, at the Edgewood Resort, on Lake Tahoe. Trump has denied the allegations and at one point threatened to sue his accusers, though he has yet to do so.

Trump also appeared to chide the media for its coverage of his relationship with Moscow, adding, "Total Fake News!".

"Changing the characterization of Trump campaign officials from "unwitting" to "colluding" in any future indictment is unlikely", wrote Cuccinelli, president of the Senate Conservatives Fund.

A Facebook executive has announced a new plan created to mitigate foreign influence in political ad buys on the social media platform.

In addition, Rosenstein said, "There is no allegation in this indictment that any American was a knowing participant in this illegal activity" of swaying the election in Trump's favor.

USA intelligence chiefs warned earlier in the week that Russian meddling has continued and poses a threat to the U.S. mid-term congressional elections in 2018.

It's a line of criticism Trump has used previously when attempting to deflect attention from accusations his campaign associates colluded with Russian Federation in the run-up to the 2016 contest.

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. And President Obama, who had been warned about it, did nothing.
