Hillary Clinton has collected well over $100,000 from Facebook employees donating to her presidential campaign, according to federal records.

The Hill reports that people working for Facebook have donated more than $114,000 to Clinton, the leading Democrat in the race for president. Republican Marco Rubio, who suspended his presidential bid in March, has the second highest total — $16,604.

Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders, who trails Clinton on the left, has received at least $12,000 from Facebook employees.

Facebook has been under fire this week after a report claimed the social media platform blacklisted Newsmax and other conservative news outlets on its Trending Topics section.

The team led by Tom Stocky operates the Trending box, and he addressed the controversy in a Facebook post published Monday.

"Facebook does not allow or advise our reviewers to systematically discriminate against sources of any ideological origin and we've designed our tools to make that technically not feasible," Stocky wrote. "At the same time, our reviewers' actions are logged and reviewed, and violating our guidelines is a fireable offense."
