U.S. Senator Ben Sasse, a member of the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence, issued the following statement after the Commerce Department issued new rules restricting Huawei's access to foreign-made chips.

“Huawei isn’t a private company, it is the Chinese Communist Party’s tech puppet. We cannot allow Beijing to use American technology to weaponize networks against the free world. This crackdown and expansion of Commerce’s restrictions are the right move.”
