Dem congressman: FBI should drop tech ‘back door’ request to Apple

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.

Rep. Ted 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.

“Let’s all take a deep breath and start talking to each other instead of fighting in court,” he wrote.
