Reports say, at least one Facebook employee has been interviewed by special counsel Robert Mueller as part of his investigation into potential Russian interference with the 2016 election. But let’s not jump to conclusions just yet.
The Facebook staff was associated with the Trump campaign, which could mean about anything. For an extensive spender on social media, as the campaign definitely was, it isn’t unusual for Facebook, Google, Twitter, and other properties selling ads to have a liaison with the client.
Since Facebook is also up to its eyes on Russia-related inquiries, it makes complete sense that someone acting as go-between or advisor for the company and the campaign gets interviewed as a matter of course.
The Facebook staffer would be the first to be questioned for any information relating to Trump campaign spending, including whether or not there was any knowledge of or involvement in the Russian side of things — just to say if there’s anything to know, that person would know it.
As Facebook was heavily targeted by Russian bots and trolls during the election than its rivals, it makes sense that it would be pulled in like this.
