Facebook said last month that it believed people in Russian Federation bought about 3,000 politically divisive ads on its network in the United States in the months before and after the November U.S. presidential election.
CNN said it was not specified by its sources when the ads ran in the two states. Wisconsin was also one of the tightest states, and Trump won there by only about 22,700 votes.
Trump beat Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton in MI by just 10,704 votes.
Accused of having to react first, Facebook is now multiplying communications on this subject.
Facebook handed over to Congress roughly 3,000 ads with links to Russian Federation on Monday. This step, according to Facebook, would help deter Russian Federation or any other country from meddling in the elections in the future.
"We are sharing these ads with Congress because we want to do our part to help investigators gain a deeper understanding of Russian interference in the USA political system and explain those activities to the public", said Joel Kaplan, VP Global Public Policy, Facebook. "We are viewing more proof of extra ads and how they are utilized to influence people", the vice chairman of the committee, Warner, claimed to the reporters. Additionally, it turns out that 50 percent of the ads cost under $3, while 99 percent of all the ads cost $1000 or less. The company said of the ads that were geographically targeted "more ran in 2015 than 2016".

Around 10 million Facebook users saw 3,000 Russia-bought political ads during the campaign, the platform announced Monday.
Facebook, the largest social network of the world, claimed last week that an operation probably located in Russian Federation had positioned millions of US ads with polarizing opinions on subjects such as race, immigration, and gay rights on the website during a 2-year time frame through May 2017.
Facebook also said it would make advertising more transparent, tighten restrictions on content, and strengthen enforcement against improper ads.
Schiff also said he was "committed to making all of these ads public as soon as possible, working closely with Facebook to address any privacy considerations".
Facebook Inc. and Twitter Inc. have both already disclosed political ad spending by accounts affiliated with Russian Federation. "While we may not always agree with the positions of those who would speak on issues here, we believe in their right to do so-just as we believe in the right of Americans to express opinions on issues in other countries", Facebook said in its post.
