WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The U.S. House Intelligence Committee will disclose on Wednesday a sample of Russian-linked content that ran on social media during the 2016 presidential election, the panel's top Democrat said.

Representative Adam Schiff said the committee would show a "representative sample" of Russian advertisements and posts during a hearing on Wednesday at which lawyers from Facebook, Twitter and Alphabet's Google, were testifying about Russian influence on their networks.
