Apple vs. FBI: Congressman urges Comey to drop demands, 'take a deep breath'
LOS ANGELES TIMES Feb 23, 2016
Amid the tense standoff between the
FBI and Apple, a Los Angeles congressman on Tuesday urged FBI Director
James Comey to drop the demand the tech giant help the agency unlock the
iPhone of one of the San Bernardino terrorists.
Lieu (D-Los Angeles) wrote in a letter to Comey that it should be up to
Congress, "stakeholders, and the American public debate and resolve
these difficult issues, not unelected judges."
Lieu expressed concern about the courts deciding the issue based on
a 1789 law, which he said does not take into account the complexities
of today's technology.
