Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg is currently engaging in his second Congressional hearing regarding questions surrounding Cambridge Analytica and the privacy crisis facing his popular website, including concerns as to how the company shares the data of its users and how stolen or sold data might have swayed users during the 2016 presidential election. The embattled exec is set to be questioned by the Senate Judiciary and the Commerce, Science, and Transportation committees over the course of two days.

Variety reports that Zuckerberg’s opening statements were released ahead of the Energy and Commerce hearing, and includes admissions from Zuckerberg, including a note that the company “didn’t do enough to prevent these tools from being used for harm,” adding that Facebook “didn’t take a broad enough view of our responsibility, and that was a big mistake. It was my mistake, and I’m sorry.”

You can watch the first hearing on the Senate Judiciary website starting at 11:15 a.m. PT/2:15 p.m. ET. They will also air on C-SPAN, and PBS’ “News Hour” live-stream can be seen below.
