Companies allegedly share information with   authorities, and   use them   products in   Thus, the United States " will become an invitation to Chinese intelligence in   all aspects of life. "

These fears arose long ago. For example, in   In 2010, 4 senators submitted letters to the   The Federal   connection, even then suspecting Huawei and   ZTE in   ties with   " Top " of China. Within a year, both companies became involved in the report of the Standing Committee of the House of Representatives on   intelligence, in   which recommended that the US government be prohibited from buying Huawei products and   ZTE.
