Apple vs FBI: Apple’s statement to Congress, Apple’s lawyer & Warren Buffet weigh in
Apple is set to officially make a statement before Congress tomorrow regarding its refusal to fulfill a judge’s request to help the FBI unlock a suspect’s iPhone in the high-profile San Bernardino attacks. Apple’s General Counsel Bruce Sewell, likely alongside other Apple employees, will deliver the prepared statement below at the hearing titled Balancing Americans’ Security and Privacy before addressing the panel and answering questions from Congress (via The Verge).
In the full statement (below), Apple echoed many of the past statements CEO Tim Cook and other representatives have given throughout the controversy, explaining that the FBI’s demands for a backdoor into iOS “would set a dangerous precedent for government intrusion on the privacy and safety of its citizens.”
