Tech Steve Bannon Sought To Infiltrate Facebook Hiring

Bannon tried to infiltrate FacebookSteve Bannon plotted to plant a mole inside Facebook, according to emails sent days before the Breitbart boss took over Donald Trump’s campaign and obtained by BuzzFeed News.

The email exchange with a conservative Washington operative reveals the importance that the giant tech platform — now reeling from its role in the 2016 election — held for one of the campaign’s central figures. And it also shows the lengths to which the brawling new American right is willing to go to keep tabs on and gain leverage over the Silicon Valley giants it used to help elect Trump — but whose executives it also sees as part of the globalist enemy.

Trump says Facebook ads by Russia are a hoaxPresident Donald Trump objected Friday morning to the fresh attention being paid to the ongoing investigation into Russia’s effort to interfere in last year’s presidential election after Facebook announced it would hand over details of Russian-purchased advertisements linked to the 2016 election.
