Facebook removes Stone posts

Facebook removed more than 100 accounts and networks affiliated with convicted Republican operative Roger Stone, a former adviser to President Donald Trump, for trafficking in false information dating to at least 2015.

Nathaniel Gleicher, the social media giant's chief of security policy, described the material Wednesday as "coordinated inauthentic behavior ... focused on domestic audiences."

Much of the activity, according to Gleicher, occurred just before and after the 2016 presidential election and included the posting of Democratic Party emails released by Wikileaks. The emails, damaging to Hillary Clinton's presidential campaign, were stolen by Russian hackers.
