The Late Night audience of Stephen Colbert got a dose of important law related information straight from the Nation's top cop. Watch below.

The FBI wants Apple to help them crack the iPhone of the San Bernardino shooter. Apple CEO Tim Cook is strictly against it, raising several flags around privacy and giving law enforcement the precedent to unlock iPhones in the future.

Last night Attorney General Loretta Lynch appeared on the Late Show with Stephen Colbert to explain her view on the case. She did a great job in selling demand that Apple needs to support the FBI in accessing the San Bernardino iPhone. Colbert did a matching great job raising all the arguments Apple puts forward on why the company is not collaborating with the FBI.

Attorney General Loretta Lynch begins with that she understand how important privacy is for everybody. Privacy is important to her personally as Attorney General and as a citizen. She argues that they are not asking for a backdoor to spy on anyone.

"We're asking them to do what the customer wants. The real owner of the phone is the county, the employer of one of the terrorists that are dead and we ask them to remove the password erase function that wipes the phone after you get the password wrong over ten times. It is very narrow and focused," said Loretta Lynch in conclusion.

Edward Snowden said earlier this week how the FBI can remove the password erase without Apple's help, rendering the whole case irrelevant unless the FBI wants something else. The conflict will be battled out in court.

The iPhone topic comes up at 2:56 in the clip below, but the whole interview is highly recommendable. The Attorney General for instance reveals why she is not getting pulled over while driving black.
