Senators Tom Cotton and Chris Van Hollen Praise Huawei Charges, Urge Further Action

 Following reports that the U.S. Department of Justice brought charges of racketeering and stealing trade secrets against the Chinese telecommunications company Huawei, U.S. Senators Tom Cotton (R-AR) and Chris Van Hollen (D-MD) released the following statement:

“The Huawei indictment exposes its plot to undermine America’s economy and security on behalf of the Chinese Communist Party. We commend the Justice Department for bringing these charges, but more should be done to stop Huawei’s relentless campaign to infect 5G networks worldwide. Congress ought to pass our bill to bring the hammer down on Huawei and any other Chinese company that violates our sanctions or export control laws.”
