Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg revealed in high-stakes testimony before Congress that his company is cooperating with special counsel Robert Mueller’s probe.
He also at first revealed that Facebook had gotten subpoenas from Mueller’s investigators – only to walk back the account under questioning.
‘I Assume Facebook’s been served with subpoenas from special counsel Mueller’s office is that correct?’ asked senior Democratic Judiciary Committee member Sen. Patrick Leahy of Vermont.
‘Yes,’ Zuckerberg responded as his closely-watched testimony before a joint committee was underway.
‘Have you or anyone else at Facebook been interviewed by the special counsel’s office,’ Leahy, a former prosecutor, followed up.
Zuckerberg responded in the affirmative, but said he had not been personally interviewed.
