What to expect from Zuckerberg if he testifies to Congress.

A growing number of lawmakers are calling for Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg to testify in front of Congress following reports that the joint data firm founded by Stephen Bannon and funded by billionaire Robert Mercer stealthily harvested data from 50 million Facebook users.

This week Sens. Richard Blumenthal (D-Conn.), Amy Klobuchar (D-Minn.), John Kennedy (R-La.), and Ron Wyden (D-Ore.) all called for Zuckerberg to answer the public’s questions surrounding Facebook and its libraries of data.

Klobuchar and Kennedy sent a bipartisan letter to Judiciary Committee Chair Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) requesting an in-person hearing in Congress. Wyden sent a letter to Zuckerberg himself on Monday, and a list of eight questions.
