WATCH LIVE: Facebook Oversight Board announces Trump decision

Facebook’s Oversight Board will announce its decision Wednesday in the case of former President Donald Trump, whose Facebook and Instagram accounts were suspended Jan. 7 for inciting violence that led to the riots at the U.S. Capitol.

Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg said that the risks of allowing then-President Trump to continue to use the service during the transition were “simply too great.”

The announcement is expected around 9 a.m.
