Clinton says false stories on Facebook helped Trump win election

Clinton landed somewhere in the middle, stating that "the fact is, they added something".

Later in the talk, interviewers Kara Swisher and Walt Mossberg asked Clinton what she made of Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos' purchase of the Washington Post in 2013.

"Guided by Americans and guided by people who had y'know, polling", she agreed. Donald Trump, on the other hand, did nothing himself related to data, she said, but inherited a $100 million "tried-and-true, effective" data foundation from the RNC.

"We did not engage in false content", Clinton said.

He also hinted that he was eager to return to the probe, which he painted as an attempt by Democrats to explain away Hillary Clinton's election loss.

Nunes said that because of the ongoing Russian Federation investigation, and questions of what ties the Trump campaign may have had to what happened, he didn't think what he found would be given to Trump unless he delivered the information himself. He could not immediately be reached.

Trump's administration has been dogged in its first months by allegations his associates had inappropriate contacts with Russian government officials.

FBI Director James Comey testifies before the House Oversight Committee about Hillary Clinton's email investigation in July 2016.

Trump earlier Tuesday tweeted that Russian election meddling is "a lame excuse for why Dems lost the election" in 2016. "I got paid for the speeches I made", she said. "I know that there's probably media in here, you can write it but just try to get it right when you do", he said.

Facebook Chief Executive Mark Zuckerberg said just after the November election that it was "crazy" to think that fake news on the site had influenced the election in any way.

"[Democrats] have tried to destroy this Russian Federation investigation, they've never been serious about it, and one of the great things now that I've stepped aside from this Russian Federation investigation, I can actually say what I want to say", Nunes said at the fundraiser. This strategy was effective in turning out a portion of the traditional Democratic party, and perhaps some of the previous core voter-base, but not the majority of Americans. I mean, it was bankrupt.

It's important for people in tech and business to understand the marriage of the "domestic fake news operations", the sophisticated Russian cyber units and the Republicans' more flush data repository, Clinton said. "I had to inject money into it, the DNC, to keep it going".
