Warner and Hawley have proposed legislation that would force the tech giants to tell users what data they're collecting from them and how much it's worth.
The visit, including a Wednesday night private dinner with Warner and other lawmakers, comes after his stormy appearance previous year before Congress, where he was grilled on Facebook's data protection and privacy missteps.

"Open Facebook's books up, open their employees to interviews". He also had dinner with lawmakers, including Senator Richard Blumenthal, on Wednesday evening. After a number of Senate hearings on the matter, the US Federal Trade Commission hit Zuckerberg's brainchild with a hefty fine of $5 billion (€ 4.5 billion) for data protection violations, purported to be over the Cambridge Analytica data scandal. The proposal goes to the heart of Big Tech's hugely profitable business model of commerce in users' personal data.
