Facebook, Mark Zuckerberg, and Sheryl Sandberg have donated to some of the lawmakers questioning Zuckerberg during his Congressional testimony this week.

Facebook has given the most to Sen. Cory Booker (D-NJ).

Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg doesn't have a strong presence in Washington — but he, Sheryl Sandberg, and Facebook Inc have donated tens of thousands of dollars to several of the same lawmakers that questioned him this week in high-profile Congressional hearings.

Congress grilled Zuckerberg over the Cambridge Analytica privacy scandal in which the personal data of 87 million users was obtained by the Trump-linked political research firm Cambridge Analytica.

In his first day of testimony, Zuckerberg also answered questions about the spread of fake news, Russian manipulation of the social network, and free speech.

Since 2014, Facebook has donated a total of $1.8 million to members of Congress, according to data from the Center for Responsive Politics.
