US Senator Introduces House Bill Banning Intelligence Sharing With Countries Using Huawei

In the Unted States, the paranoia over Huawei continues as another Senator joins the bandwagon. This time around, Senator Jim Banks has introduced a bill that would prohibit the United States from sharing intelligence with countries that allow Huawei to operate their 5G networks.

“Huawei is a Trojan Horse for the Chinese Communist Party to spy on and infiltrate other nations. Our allies must choose: Adopt Huawei and lose access to U.S. intelligence, or remain our trusted partner,” Banks said.

Senator Tom Cotton recently introduced companion legislation in the Senate wanting to bar President Trump from lifting restrictions on Huawei.

Rep. Elizabeth Cheney joined as an original co-sponsor, arguing that it’s a necessary step to prevent the Chinese government from spying on the country, saying the company poses a risk to U.S. national security.

Cheney also called on the UK to refrain from doing business with the telecommunications company, arguing it could strain relations between Washington and London.

Cheney added,

“I hope that the U.K. unites with the U.S. and other allies against the threat from Huawei,”

The UK is expected to announce whether it will use Huawei in its 5G networks in coming weeks.
