Sen. Mark Warner, the top Democrat on the Senate Intelligence Committee, criticized Facebook during a Tuesday morning Axios event after a New York Times report yesterday indicated that the company had shared user data with major telecom device companies.

Quote“Well, unfortunately with Facebook, it is a great company, but we’re seeing this pattern repeat itself.”

Why it matters: Lawmakers across the aisle have expressed concerns about the new reports of data sharing at Facebook as it continues to grapple with earlier scandals over Cambridge Analytica's use of its data and Russia's election meddling.
