Senator Mark Warner, top Democrat on the Senate Intelligence Committee, said on Sunday (March 25) Facebook had “not been fully forthcoming” with Congress in relation to the ongoing controversy surrounding Cambridge Analytica, a firm that allegedly harvested personal data from Facebook to target U.S. voters.

“I don’t want to outregulate these companies into oblivion but I do think people need to have the ability to know where the information they’re receiving is honest, truthful or at least originates in this country,” Warner said on NBC’s ‘Meet the Press’.

Earlier this week, Facebok CEO Mark Zuckerberg apologised for mistakes his company made in how it handled data belonging to 50 million of its users, and promised tougher steps to restrict developers’ access to such information.
