Walden, Pallone Call on Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg to Testify Before Committee
House Energy and Commerce Committee Chairman Greg Walden (R-OR) and Ranking Member Frank Pallone, Jr. (D-NJ) released the following statement calling on Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg to testify before the committee.
“The latest revelations regarding Facebook’s use and security of user data raises many serious consumer protection concerns. After committee staff received a briefing yesterday from Facebook officials, we felt that many questions were left unanswered. Mr. Zuckerberg has stated that he would be willing to testify if he is the right person. We believe, as CEO of Facebook, he is the right witness to provide answers to the American people. We look forward to working with Facebook and Mr. Zuckerberg to determine a date and time in the near future for a hearing before this committee,” said Walden and Pallone.
The committee will send a formal letter to Zuckerberg in the coming days.
