On Tuesday and Wednesday, Mark Zuckerberg will testify before Congress about the Cambridge Analytica scandal. During the two congressional hearings—his first appearance before Congress—he is expected to be grilled about the policies that allowed the data firm to obtain and share the data of millions of Facebook users. Members of Congress are likely to ask him questions about user privacy, election integrity, and Facebook’s influence on the public’s news consumption and habits. Zuckerberg, facing the prospect of regulation, is likely to apologize.

On Tuesday, the Senate Committee hearing, originally planned to start at 2:15 p.m. Eastern, is now expected to start closer to 2:30 p.m. because of a procedural vote.
