The Obama administration also slapped sanctions on Moscow in December 2016 for the election year efforts.

Facebook officials did not say how the company would stop foreign agents from setting up fraudulent mailing addresses or hiring people in the U.S.to check them.

"This is pretty typical for them, to hop on breaking news like this", says Jonathon Morgan, CEO of New Knowledge.

Trump also tweeted that the Russians were "laughing their asses off in Moscow" for the way Washington has handled the Russia investigations.

"At the Department of Justice, we take these threats seriously", Sessions said. The aim was either to influence voters or to undermine their faith in the USA political system.

But Russia is not alone in actively seeking to tarnish the institutions of American democracy - Trump has acted in a similar way during his presidency, from his jibes at the judiciary to his feuds with intelligence agencies and declaration that the media is an enemy of the people. Last November, after meeting with Putin at the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation summit in Vietnam.

"That's because he thought Crooked Hillary was going to win and he didn't want to 'rock the boat, '" Trump wrote on Twitter.

Florida school shooter Nikolas Cruz may lose $800G inheritance from deceased parents
Broward County's public defender filed a motion Tuesday asking Judge Elizabeth Scherer to determine whether Cruz, 19, is indigent. According to multiple press reports, Deschamps told Nikolas he could not have guns in her house; he refused to comply and left.

The White House has not revealed any details about that incident.

In first official comments since last week's indictment, the Kremlin dismissed on Monday Washington's accusations that Moscow had meddled in the 2016 U.S. presidential election campaign.

Now, those efforts are part of a wide-ranging investigation by special counsel Robert Mueller which has resulted in two guilty pleas - including former national security adviser Michael Flynn - and more than a dozen indictments.

The Kremlin said on Monday that USA charges against 13 Russians and several Russian companies accused of meddling in the 2016 US presidential election campaign contained zero proof of Russian state involvement. He also failed to promise to protect future U.S. elections - even though intelligence chiefs have warned that an attempt to disrupt November's midterms may already be underway.

In fact, Obama personally issued a warning to Putin in September not to tamper in the election - a warning the administration repeated a few weeks later.

None of the congressional committees investigating the interference - both the social media efforts and attempted Russian hacking of state election systems - have yet proposed policy changes to prevent it in the future. Some secretaries of state, however, told Reuters that while working relationships with DHS have improved, much more needs to be done not just to secure voting machines but also counter nation-state information warfare campaigns (see States Seek Federal Help to Combat Election Interference).

"Everyone in this room understands that what we are facing from foreign adversaries, particularly Russian Federation, is real", Chris Krebs, a senior cybersecurity official at the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), told an audience of secretaries of state, who in many states oversee elections.
