Mark Warner is using hearings to help us understand tech's dangers
I'm Mark Warner, US senator of Virginia and vice chairman of the select committee on intellegence.

And the one thing that I was proud of yesterday with the Committee, was that everybody took the issue seriously.
It wasn't stupid questions.
It wasn't Internet 101.
So, I think, at least from the Committee's standpoint, I think we feel like we're moving the ball.
