FBI more interested in suing Apple than accessing San Bernardino evidence, members of Congress say
The FBI was more interested in forcing Apple to unlock the San Bernardino shooter’s cellphone rather look at other options in a time-sensitive investigation, a group of bipartisan members of Congress said Friday.
After the December 2015 terror attack in which Syed Rizwan Farook and his wife, Tashfeen Malik, killed 17 people, the FBI sought to gather evidence from Farook’s iPhone. In a March 2016 lawsuit, the FBI alleged it could not access Farook’s phone without Apple’s assistance.
