Scalise to Zuckerberg: Say, Didn't Obama "Suck Out the Entire [Facebook] Social Graph" with Your Permission?

On Wednesday claimed, wrongly, that "no one" had asked about this.

A commenter said Tillis maybe asked (he wasn't sure about the name), but Scalise did definitely ask, here.

This isn't much of an interrogation, though. Zuckerberg's answer -- claiming one of Obama's digital gurus was just lying when she claimed Facebook looked the other way -- does choke off additional avenues of questioning (at least until it can be proven he's wrong or lying), but his answer does lead to this question:

If any other "developer" could have "downloaded the entire social graph" like Team Obama did, then what exactly did Cambridge Analytica do that was so unprecedented? Isn't this more of a problem with Facebook itself than an alleged Black Hat exploiting Facebook's innocence and naivete?
