After meeting with Facebook Chief Operating Officer Sheryl Sandberg today, leaders of the House Intelligence Committee Reps. Mike Conaway (R-TX) and Adam Schiff (D-CA) said they will release the Russian-sponsored ads that ran on Facebook during the 2016 election, per CNBC.

Why it matters: The release of the ads, which members of the Senate Intel Committee have resisted doing, would provide Americans with a clear view of the Russian influence campaign that roiled last year's election.
