Rep. Jim Banks Seeks Answers Regarding Huawei’s FTC Testimony

 

Washington, D.C. – Last week, Congressman Jim Banks (R-IN) wrote a letter to Federal Trade Commission (FTC) Chairman, Joseph Simons, regarding Huawei’s recent witness testimony.  Huawei’s products are banned in the United States due to security concerns. Read the full letter here.

Said Rep. Banks, “It is alarming that the FTC, a regulatory body in the U.S. government, would utilize an executive from a foreign company – whose products are banned by the U.S. government due to security concerns – as a key witness in a regulatory case.  This letter seeks answers about why one part of the government is actively working to keep Huawei’s products from harming U.S. interests while another is giving the company a legitimizing platform, like the FTC, to share their propaganda.”
