Congress report says Huawei and ZTE cannot be trusted

Today a Congress committee will publish results of an 11-month investigation into ZTE and Huawei on their risks to US national security. In the document both Chinese manufactures are accused of refusing to cooperate with the US investigation team and failed to explain their ties with Chinese government. Huawei is subject to "credible allegations" of "bribery, corruption, discriminatory behavior and copyright infringement." Many of the details are still unknown only available in a classified version of the report, but Intelligence Committee’s chariman, Mike Rogers already appeared on 60 minutes telling Americans to “find another vendor”, rather than do business with either company. Chinese based ZTE responded that it "should not have been the focus of this investigation to the exclusion of the much larger Western vendors" and says it "profoundly disagrees" with the findings”.
