Pro-Sanders content probed by Facebook - report

Facebook Inc. has investigated suspect content on the social media platform that supported Bernie Sanders's candidacy in the Democratic Party primaries, the Wall Street Journal reported on Monday, citing sources with knowledge of the situation.

The company's spokesman Andy Stone confirmed to the media outlet that an "outside researcher" reported suspicious activity. However, the researcher's claims couldn't be substantiated and no United States intelligence agency contacted Facebook regarding the issue, he added.

It was reported last week that Russia is allegedly trying to interfere in the US election process by helping Sanders win the Democratic presidential nomination.
