NEW YORK (AP) — The Latest on Facebook and the Russia investigation (all times local):


1:10 p.m.
Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg says that while his company is cooperating with the Russia investigation, no one should expect it to intercept all undesirable material before it hits its social network.
“I’m not going to sit here and tell you we’re going to catch all bad content in our system. We don’t check what people say before they say it, and frankly, I don’t think our society shouldn’t want us to,” Zuckerberg said. ” If you break our community standards or the law, then you’re going to face consequences afterwards.”
He added: “We won’t catch everyone immediately, but we can make it harder to try to interfere.”
But Zuckerberg hinted that the company may not provide much information publicly, saying that the fact that his company is a part of the federal investigation would limit what he can reveal.

1 p.m.
Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg says the company is “actively working” with the U.S. government on its ongoing investigations into Russian interference into the 2016 presidential election.
Zuckerberg said in a Facebook post and live video on Thursday that he has directed his team to provide 3,000 ads, created by fake accounts linked to Russia, to Congress.
“We support Congress in deciding how to best use this information to inform the public, and we expect the government to publish its findings when their investigation is complete,” Zuckerberg wrote.


12:45 p.m.
Facebook says the company will provide the contents of 3,000 ads bought by a Russian agency to congressional investigators.
The move Thursday comes as the company has faced growing pressure from members of Congress to release the content of the ads. Facebook had already released the ads to federal authorities investigating Russian interference in the 2016 U.S. presidential election.
The leaders of the Senate Intelligence Committee have been seeking to bring Facebook executives before their committee since the company first revealed the existence of the ads two weeks ago.
But critics say Facebook should go further. They say the company should tell its users how they might have been influenced by outside meddlers.
