Apple Lawyer: The Government Has No Legal Authority to Conscript Apple [Video]

Apple lawyer Theodore Olson reiterates that the government does not have the legal authority to conscript the company to build a backdoor into its device in an interview with Bloomberg.

"There isn't a middle ground that I know of that requires Apple to go to work for the government. We have a constitution. The constitution does not allow the government to conscript private citizens to invent products or to change the products that they have invented in order for the government to look into the product or to cause the product to do what it wants. That's a very very significant thing."

Take a look at the interview below...

The interviewer is paid to grill the lawyer, I get that. But some questions she asks are just ridiculous.
