U.S. House Committee blames DoD and FCC on Huawei removal progress




The U.S. government and China are still under competition hangover and they are crushing Huawei in the process. Aside from this, the U.S. House Committee wants a briefing from Depart of Defence (DoD) and the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) and blames the current progress of Huawei.

U.S. House Committee on Oversight and Reform Ranking Member James Comer (R-Ky.) and Subcommittee on National Security Ranking Member Glenn Grothman (R-Wis.) wrote two letters for Department of Defense (DoD) Secretary Lloyd Austin and Federal Communications Commission (FCC) Chairwoman Jessica Rosenworcel regarding Huawei.

These letters raised the question that Huawei’s infrastructure has yet to be removed from the U.S. cellular network despite its threat to national security.

These representatives cited the past false claim that Huawei can access or disrupt American security. Here’s what they wrote:

“We write to request a briefing from the Federal Communications Commission (Commission) on efforts to remove Huawei Technologies Co., Ltd (Huawei) infrastructure from the United States cellular network. The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) recently determined that Huawei equipment installed atop cell towers—in one instance only a third of a mile from an intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) silo in Montana—is “capable of capturing and disrupting highly restricted Defense Department communications, including those used by U.S. Strategic Command, which oversees the country’s nuclear weapons.” In 2020, Congress enacted a program to remove and replace Chinese-made cellular equipment throughout the United States.2 Committee Republicans are concerned that the Huawei equipment has yet to be removed and, therefore, continues to pose a threat to U.S. national security.”

The letter also mentions – The trump-led Entity List program that barred the company from doing any business with U.S. companies.

They representatives blame the commission has made little to no progress on removing Huawei cellular equipment. Yeah, that’s what will happen because the American cellular network doesn’t get enough support to replace Huawei equipment and FCC could propose any plan to remove the Chinese tech giant but it cannot proceed with the strategy because the companies aren’t getting enough support from the U.S. government.
