A new book reveals Facebook employees feel they were ordered to cover up details of Russia’s involvement in the 2016 presidential election.

The new book, “An Ugly Truth: Inside Facebook’s Battle for Domination,” says Facebook prepared an internal white paper on security concerns in 2017. That whitepaper purportedly had details on Russia’s actions to influence the election, but then that information was purged after orders came down from Facebook leadership.

The insiders say the details on Russian hacking were deemed “politically unwise” to be released as Donald Trump began his first year in the presidency.

“We started to feel like we were part of a cover-up at Facebook,” one Facebook insider revealed to the book’s authors.

It later emerged that Facebook was the channel of choice for Russian actions to influence the outcome of the 2016 election in favor of Trump. The site was awash in right-wing disinformation, attacking Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton in an attempt to suppress those who supported Clinton in key swing states.

Ultimately, Trump won the election through the electoral college and lost the popular vote to Clinton. Trump again lost the popular vote in 2020 to President Joe Biden and was limited to one unpopular term in office.
