Here are the Russia-linked Facebook ads released by Congress

As part of this week’s hearings into how Russia has used social media to influence American opinion, House lawmakers released several Facebook and Instagram ads linked to Kremlin meddling online. Although lawmakers have not yet released the full cache of ads, which includes about 3,000 examples provided to Congress by Facebook, the so-far disclosed ads offer one of the closest looks yet at the Russian operation.

Some of these ads and fake accounts are quite fascinating – they’re clearly designed not just to promote Trump, but also to rile up different groups – from the LGBT community to proponents of the US 2nd amendment – against each other. Oh, and also to pitch a fight between Clinton and Jesus.
