WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The top Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee said on Monday he intended to make a "representative sampling" of Facebook Inc political ads believed to have been purchased by Russia available to the public later this month and that he hoped to make them all public eventually.
Representative Adam Schiff confirmed that his committee, which is investigating Russian interference in last year's presidential election, had received from Facebook more than 3,000 politically divisive ads the social media company found on its network that it said appeared in the months before and after the November 2016 U.S. election.
