Capitol Hill is concerned about the recent revelation that Facebook shared user data with device manufacturers like Apple and Samsung.

Why it matters: Facebook has been trying to move on from the Cambridge Analytica data scandal, but the latest story puts the social giant's privacy issues back in the spotlight and Congress' crosshairs.

What they're saying:

  • Senate Commerce Committee leaders John Thune (R) and Bill Nelson (D) sent Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg followup questions in a Tuesday letter, including asking for a full list of device manufacturers Facebook shared data with and details of how Facebook disclosed those sharing arrangements to consumers.
  • "We look forward to addressing any questions the Commerce Committee has," a Facebook spokesperson said.
  • Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley and top House Energy and Commerce Committee Democrat Frank Pallone want the Federal Trade Commission to look at the issue. Facebook critics say that the data sharing violated a previous settlement with the agency, which is already digging into the company's practices in light of the Cambridge Analytica scandal.
  • At an Axios event Tuesday morning, Senate Intelligence Committee Vice Chair Mark Warner asked whether Facebook had shared user data with Chinese telecom providers like ZTE and Huawei — which lawmakers worry are are too close to China's government.

In a midterm preview, top Democratic strategist Anita Dunn advises the party's House and Senate members to frame Republicans "as being against the economic interests of working Americans."

What she's saying: "Explicitly framing Republicans as opposing policies to lower costs does better than simply framing Republicans as the 'party of no,'" Dunn, White House senior adviser until August, writes in the memo.

JPMorgan Chase Global Research says in a forecast to clients: "2022 will be the year of a full global recovery, an end of the global pandemic, and a return to normal conditions we had prior to the COVID-19 outbreak."

The big picture: The bullish report sees "a return of global mobility, and a release of pent-up demand from consumers (e.g. travel, services)."

Inside Trump's hunt for "disloyal" Republicans

Donald Trump and his associates are systematically reshaping the Republican Party, working to install hand-picked loyalists across federal and state governments and destroy those he feels have been disloyal, sources close to the former president tell Axios.

Why it matters: If most or all of Trump’s candidates win, he will go into the 2024 election cycle with far more people willing to do his bidding who run the elections in key states.
