Lawyers for Facebook, Twitter and Google were repeatedly criticized by lawmakers for what they portrayed as a lack of effort in addressing foreign meddling on their platforms in the past and pressed to account for what steps they would take in the future.

The companies were also scheduled to testify before the U.S. House Intelligence Committee later on Wednesday. "You have a huge problem on your hands".

"We would appreciate seeing the top people who are actually making the decisions".

King, who called Russia's influence online a "sophisticated worldwide strategy", used information compiled by Alliance for Securing Democracy to show that Russian Federation continues to try and interfere in American discourse by propagating hashtags related to President Donald Trump's attacks on NFL players kneeling during the national anthem, Trump's catchphrase "MAGA", and the ongoing conflict in Syria. Experts have said that the Russians' goals included promoting discord in the US and inciting violence.
