The evidence has been collected for a while. Yes the report was politically motivated, but the threat is real. China is NOT our friend. I try to avoid using anything made in China, but it is next to impossible. Just be aware that many of their advanced devices are not necessarily benign. Just my opinion.

For the record, here are a couple of excerpts from the Huawei statement about the report: "The report conducted by the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence, which took 11 months to complete, failed to provide clear information or evidence to substantiate the legitimacy of the Committee's concerns." "Despite our best effort, the Committee appears to have been committed to a predetermined outcome." Whole statement can be found here: http://www.huawei.com/en/about-huawei/newsroom/press-release/hw-194454-hpsci.htm

That's an interesting perspective. To some degree, I'd say it does seem as though these firms were accused of something and asked to prove their innocence. Being that these are politicians, there are likely some politics involved. I felt that the report was pretty strongly worded, which surprised me.

"According to the report, both Huawei and ZTE failed to provide sufficient evidence to alleviate the committee's concerns. ", Interesting. Guilty until prove innocent. The principle used here is opposite to the court cases.
