After requesting Russia release Hillary Clinton's deleted emails in July 2016, then-candidate Donald Trump repeatedly asked Michael Flynn to hunt down the emails, according to the Mueller report released Thursday.

Why it matters: Trump has always claimed he was joking when he requested the emails from Russia, but opponents will likely see this as confirmation Trump was not joking. Flynn took the requests seriously enough to contact individuals already looking for the emails.

In a Good Morning America interview on Thursday, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg said that Facebook is "still looking into" a recent report from UpGuard cybersecurity researchers that found large amounts of Facebook user data publicly available on Amazon’s Web Services server.

Driving the news: In the interview, Zuckerberg called for more government regulation as the company works on "major social issues," such as "policing harmful content to protecting the integrity of elections to making sure that data privacy controls are strong." He made similar statements in a recent op-ed in the Washington Post.
