Facebook's Vice-President for Global Affairs and Communications was seen on video fleeing from a Project Veritas journalist confronting him over a previous statement he had made.

Nick Clegg, the former party leader of the Liberal Democrats in the United Kingdom, was caught on video recently arguing that Facebook has "too much power."

"I'm a journalist from Project Veritas, can you answer a question for me?" the journalist asked Clegg, prompting Clegg to quickly enter his vehicle.

"You said world leaders from Mexico, Russia, and Germany say Facebook has too much power," he continued as Clegg began to drive off. He was unable to complete his question to Clegg.

"But there has been quite a lot of disquiet expressed by many leaders around the world from the President of Mexico to Alexei Navalny in Russia, to Chancellor Angela Merkel and others saying 'well this shows that private companies have got too much power, and they should be only making these decisions in a way that is framed by democratically-agreed rules," Clegg was heard saying on video. "We agree with that. Mark has been very clear about that."

Clegg had made the comments while discussing Facebook's new oversight board, which allows users to appeal moderation decisions taken against their account. The board has overturned most decisions brought before it thus far.
