WikiLeaks co-founder Julian Assange has tweeted out emails that show executives of Facebook directly communicating with Hillary Clinton’s campaign team.

The reminder that Facebook executives were communicating with Clinton comes as US lawmakers demand social media companies detail how their platforms were used by Russia to allegedly influence the 2016 election.

The emails that were tweeted are part of the WikiLeaks drop of Hillary Clinton’s campaign chairman, John Podesta, that the whistleblowing site originally released on October 7 last year.

As American media was speculating about Russian interference via social media on Thursday, Assange decided to remind everyone that the leaders of Facebook were actually fans of Clinton.

An email from January 2016 details a conversation between Podesta and Facebook’s Chief Operating Officer Sheryl Sandberg.

“Look forward to working with you to elect the first woman President of the United States,” Podesta wrote in the email. Sandberg replied by saying how she was “thrilled” by Clinton’s progress.

Podesta was also copied in an email from Clinton aide Cheryl Mills in February 2015. Mills detailed how she had arranged for Sandberg and her researcher to visit the office to “step through the research on gender and leadership by women.”

The Facebook COO also wrote to Podesta in June 2015, telling him how much she would “still want HRC to win badly.”

“I am still here to help as I can. She came over and was magical with my kids,” Sandberg wrote in the email.

Even Mark Zuckerberg, the CEO and founder of Facebook, wrote to Podesta to tell him how much he enjoyed his company and he had “a lot to think about” after their conversation.

Zuckerberg also thanked Podesta for sharing his thoughts with the Center for American Progress (CAP).

Elliot Schrage, the vice president of communications at Facebook, was also included in the email thread.

Schrage told Podesta that although Zuckerberg “can be a demanding and inquisitive student, and he was both impressed and grateful for your time and candor.”

“He’s begun a challenging journey to direct his wealth to have an impact as great as Facebook and your ideas and perspectives really moved his thinking. I know he was focused on the kinds of structures he should put together, but now I suspect he’ll be paying more attention to the types of people he needs — policy entrepreneurs and strategists — as he thinks about next steps,” he wrote. “Any and all suggestions are welcome among folks you know or have worked with. Please don’t hesitate to reach out if there are things we can do to be helpful in you and your work — whether at CAP or elsewhere.”

Zuckerberg also asked to keep in contact with Podesta and assured that he was looking forward to continuing their conversation.

“I hope it’s okay if I reach out as my thinking develops to get your ideas and reactions,” he said. “If there are any other folks you think I should talk to, please let me know.”

Social media users began using the hashtag #FaceBookLeaks in an attempt to bring attention to the hypocrisy of the Democrats as they try in vain to link those pesky Russians with President Trump.

    TRUMP has to turn the IRS loose on Faceberg. I got banned today for making a joke about a PEDOPHILE. That’s where Liberal “hate speech” logic is, right now- if you hurt the feelings of someone who RAPES CHILDREN, you’re banned from their sand box…this is the Democratic Party platform, ca. 2017…

    Hillary didn’t win badly, but she did lose poorly.

    And still is a poor loser.

  • El Jefe Covfefe

    Even tho the fix was in, she blew it because she was so entitled and clueless as to who the real Americans are.

    Face it, the ONLY collusion I have seen or evidence I have seen since Trump won the election, is from the democrat party, Obama, Soros, their candidate, liberal media, and other liberal companies that supported the degenerate lying scumbag Hillary. We even uncovered collusion in our intelligence agencies, and in government agencies, yet no charges and convictions yet. It goes to show you how far above the law those in government are, and how corrupted they definitely are. Now we see that companies we support, colluded against us.

    Since facebook advanced crooked hillary’s campaign, shouldn’t it be considered a campaign contribution? shouldn’t there be some kind of FEC investigation?
