Information & Ethics committee  That's my next question. When people are engaging SCL, Cambridge Analytica, or AggregateIQ, particularly for elections, what are they buying?

Subcommittee on International Human Rights committee   I was able to leave the country. I am lucky to be here today.

In building that coalition, that group of like-minded countries, we have to recognize that while you say we've invested millions in Burma, we have historically done very little in Burma.
