Apple, FBI Bring Privacy Debate To Congress

Apple and the Federal Bureau of Investigation testified Tuesday before the House Judiciary Committee in the first public face-off since a federal court ordered the technology company to help unlock the iPhone of San Bernardino killer Syed Rizwan Farook.

The hearing comes just a day after a federal judge in New York denied a government request to open another iPhone in a drug case. Technology policy editor Dawn Chmielewski of Re/code takes Here & Now’s Robin Young through Apple and the FBI’s arguments on privacy and security.
