Tomorrow, Apple’s general counsel Bruce Sewell will make its case before a congressional Judiciary Committee.
It’s Apple’s first appearance before Congress since the company received an order to break security measures on a phone linked to the San Bernardino attacks, and Sewell may be facing a skeptical crowd.
He’ll be joined by Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance, who has been an outspoken critic of the company’s encryption policies, as well as a number of House representatives who have been vocal supporters of the #FBI‘s position in the past. FBI Director James Comey will also appear before the committee, although he will appear on a separate panel.
