Barr insists the people shouldn't be allowed to talk behind his back

Tech CrunchU.S. attorney general William Barr has said consumers should accept the risks that encryption backdoors pose to their personal cybersecurity to ensure law enforcement can access encrypted communications.

In a speech Tuesday in New York, the U.S. attorney general parroted much of the same rhetoric from his predecessors and other senior staff at the Justice Department, calling on tech companies to do more to assist federal authorities to gain access to devices with a lawful order.

Barr has been pretty good on SpyGate, but he's definitely a conventional DOJ pick with regard to encryption policy. Neither party has been any good on this issue.
