After a year-long investigation, the House intelligence committee has concluded that a Chinese telecommunications company that has been trying to expand in the U.S. poses a national-security
threat, and may have already violated U.S. laws. “The firm, Huawei Technologies Inc., and a second firm, ZTE Inc., pose security risks to the U.S. because their equipment could be used for
spying on Americans,” The Wall Street Journal reports. “The committee recommends that the U.S. block acquisitions or mergers involving the two companies” -- and avoid using equipment
from the firms.
