Looks like Donald Trump was right again. The FBI is finally admitting that the Chinese tech in the Huawei equipment sold to the U.S. telecom industry can detect, capture, and interrupt U.S. military communications.
The FBI has concluded its review of the Huawei equipment found on most of America’s cell phone towers and has discovered that is dangerous to our national security.
Huawei is a Chinese tech company that is fully owned and operated by the Chinese military.
Per Breitbart News:
…Chinese telecom giant Huawei has been the subject of investigations by the FBI who now believes that the company’s equipment has the ability to snoop on U.S. military communications, and even disrupt communications when activated.
Donald Trump put policies in place largely banning Huawei from the United States, considerably damaging the company’s profits, but the equipment remains on many cell towers, including those strategically placed near critical military infrastructure.
According to former senior FBI agent John Lenkart, the agency began examining Huawei’s business activities from a financial perspective to find deals that “made no sense from a return-on-investment perspective.” Lenkart says, “A lot of [counterintelligence] concerns were uncovered based on.”
Sadly, the tech industry has bought and installed Huawei’s tech all over the U.S.A. And now the biggest enemy to democracy in the world can disrupt our military communications at will.Commentary
