Facebook’s vice president of ads apologized for his claim that the goal of Russian ads on the social media platform was not to sway the 2016 presidential election.

“I wanted to apologize for having tweeted my own view about Russian interference without having it reviewed by anyone internally. The tweets were my own personal view and not Facebook’s. I conveyed my view poorly,” Rob Goldman said on Monday, according to Wired.

“The Special Counsel has far more information about what happened [than] I do—so seeming to contradict his statements was a serious mistake on my part,” he continued.

Goldman tweeted in response to special counsel Robert Mueller’s announced indictments on Friday, saying that most of Russian ad spending happened after the election and criticized the news media’s coverage of the election meddling.

President Trump on Saturday retweeted Goldman, and ripped the news media.
