A top Facebook executive said: “there is no evidence at all that Russia has an impact on the Brexit referendum result, which is a response to some of the Uk’s legislators, and many of the tech giants.

Nick Clegg, the British deputy prime minister, who currently serves as the social network’s head of global policy and communications, said that the company’s internal investigations found no evidence of abuse on the social network, mark on the Brexit vote as opposed to when the company has carried out a similar survey before the US presidential election.

“We have had a full analysis of all the data that we have in the run-up to the Brexit referendum, following the same methodology as we did after the FBI notified Facebook of the outside, the 2016 U.S. presidential election,” Clegg told BBC News on Monday. “We will not share this information with the committee as well as the Westminster, and other places. We have found no evidence of a major attempt by outside forces.”
