Mark Zuckerberg’s moment is finally here.

On Tuesday, Facebook’s CEO will make his long-anticipated appearance on Capitol Hill, where he will testify before the Senate’s Judiciary and Commerce, Science, and Transportation Committees. 

Zuckerberg will speak about Facebook’s data privacy policies, which have come under fire in the wake of Cambridge Analytica, as well as the social network’s role in combating election interference. Senators are also likely to ask about a range of other topics, including terrorism, fake news, and the potential for increased regulation.

It’s a pivotal moment for the 33-year-old CEO, who has admitted his company “didn’t take a broad enough view of our responsibility.” In prepared remarks, released Monday, Zuckerberg said his biggest fault was being too “idealistic and optimistic.”

Whether that defense will hold up under lawmakers’ questioning, though, is another matter. The company is currently facing a number of inquiries, both at home and abroad over Cambridge Analytica.

The action is set to begin just after 2:15 p.m. ET, check back here for the latest updates, and follow along live
