Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg will spend Tuesday and Wednesday facing Congressional leaders in both the House and Senate. On Tuesday, at 2:15 pm ET Zuckerberg will testify in front of the Senate Judiciary Committee and the Committee on Commerce, Science, and Transportation.
On Wednesday, Zuckerberg will meet with the House Energy and Commerce Committee. The committee released his prepared remarks while he was meeting with lawmakers on Monday afternoon.
He will tell Congress that "it’s clear now that we didn’t do enough to prevent these tools from being used for harm as well."
That goes for fake news, foreign interference in elections, and hate speech, as well as developers and data privacy. We didn’t take a broad enough view of our responsibility, and that was a big mistake. It was my mistake, and I’m sorry. I started Facebook, I run it, and I’m responsible for what happens here.
He will also face questions from lawmakers, who are eager to ask him about the Russian troll farms that Facebook allowed to purchase politically themed ads during the 2016 presidential election.
