"This document is the November 1, 2017 open hearing titled "Social Media Influence in the 2016 U.S. Election" before the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence. From the opening statement of Richard Burr: "What social media platforms played in spreading disinformation and discord during the 2016 elections. This is an opportunity for each of you to tell your respective stories and, if necessary, correct the record. My sense is that not all aspects of those stories have been told accurately. I'll note for the record that this Committee is now having its seventeenth open hearing this year, and the twelfth at which we'll be discussing Russia and Russia's activities. Today, I'm hopeful we can provide the American people with an informed and credible assessment of how foreign actors used your platforms to circulate lies and to agitate unrest during last year's elections." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: Richard, Chairman, Mark R., Vice, Colin Stretch, Sean Edgett, and Kent Walker.
