WASHINGTON, Oct 4 (Reuters) - U.S. Senator Amy Klobuchar says she will ask a Facebook (FB.O) whistleblower testifying to Congress on Tuesday whether the social media company did enough to warn law enforcement about the Jan. 6 attack on the Capitol.

The senator said she would also ask Frances Haugen, a former product manager on Facebook's civic misinformation team, about her assertion that the company's algorithms promote harmful content.
