September 3, 2016: The FBI released 58 pages of documents to the public Friday from its investigation of presidential candidate Hillary Clinton’s controversial use of a private email server during her time as U.S. secretary of state.

“Today the FBI is releasing a summary of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s July 2, 2016, interview with the FBI concerning allegations that classified information was improperly stored or transmitted on a personal email server she used during her tenure,” an official statement from the FBI’s press office read.

The FBI also released what it called a “factual summary” of its investigation in the interest of transparency and in response to multiple Freedom of Information Act requests.

Republican candidate Donald Trump’s campaign again criticised Clinton for using a private email server while secretary of state.

“Hillary Clinton is applying for a job that begins each day with a Top Secret intelligence briefing, and the notes from her FBI interview reinforce her tremendously bad judgment and dishonesty,” spokesman Jason Miller said in a statement emailed to reporters.

The documents include technical details of how the server in Clinton’s basement was set up.

The Federal Bureau of Investigation closed its year-long probe last month into whether Clinton and her aides had mishandled sensitive information that flowed through the private email server located in her New York home.

Facebook has hired a team of ex-intelligence officers, researchers and media buyers to find the worst possible things that can be done using the platform and to help the company prevent them.

The group is called “Investigative Operations Team” and is testing the company’s advertising systems, pages, Instagram, Messenger and more, BuzzFeed News reported on Saturday.

The team is searching for troubling behaviour, examining keywords and other signals that could be used to promote violence. It is also investigating Facebook’s merchant tools, attempting to spot problematic product sales.

“What we have now is a series of people who are truly looking for how could you possibly do something wrong,” said Lynda Talgo, the Facebook Business Integrity Director.

“Their entire job is to look forward and figure out what’s coming around the corner,” she added.

Facebook’s creation of this team is the latest sign of an ongoing mindset shift among Silicon Valley’s giants who are realising they can’t simply assume the best of their users and must prepare for the worst behaviour imaginable.
