Facebook wants to hire employees who have national security clearances to help prevent foreign entities from impacting future American elections, Bloomberg reported Monday

The social network wants to use these people, who can access information classified by the US government, "to search more proactively for questionable social media campaigns ahead of elections," according to Bloomberg. 

Facebook officials declined to comment on the report.

Fake news disseminated online in the lead-up to Donald Trump's presidential victory last year has become a hot topic that has entangled tech giants including Facebook, Twitter and Google.
