The Wall Street Journal: Senate panel may question Facebook on Russian election activity

WASHINGTON — The bipartisan leadership of the Senate Intelligence Committee said Tuesday they are likely to call representatives from Facebook Inc. to Capitol Hill to publicly detail Russian activity on the company’s platform during the 2016 election.

In separate interviews with reporters, Sens. Richard Burr (R., N.C.) and Mark Warner (D., Va.) said they are in discussions with each other and other committee chairs in Congress about holding a public hearing with representatives from Facebook FB, -0.32% and other social-media companies on foreign election-related activity in cyberspace.

Burr, chairman of the panel conducting a probe into Russian activity during last year’s election, said he was leaning toward hold such a hearing, but that he was working out issues like scope, jurisdiction and whether to include other social-media companies, such as Twitter Inc.
