Washington, D.C. - Congresswoman Elise Stefanik co-led a letter with Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) to Department of Commerce Secretary Gina Raimondo urging the Biden Administration to immediately revoke all export licenses to Communist Chinese spy company Huawei after Huawei announced that it will be using new technology developed by American company Intel in their latest computers.

Huawei has been listed on the Department of Commerce’s Bureau of Industry and Standards Entity List since 2019 meaning U.S. companies are required to apply for a license every time they seek to export new technology to Huawei. Huawei’s new computer containing Intel’s cutting edge chip technology makes it clear that the Biden Administration’s Department of Commerce approved a new license for Intel or broadly expanded their current license to allow them to export their technology to Huawei.

In the letter, the lawmakers state, “The Intel chipset in question is reportedly cutting-edge, with built-in Artificial Intelligence (AI) capabilities that allow users to perform AI tasks without relying on servers in the cloud. Allowing cutting-edge American technology into Huawei’s newest PC will only make it easier for the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) to evade U.S. technology restrictions and race ahead in AI. Your department’s failure to enforce your own export-control regime will aid the CCP and the People’s Liberation Army as they seek to undermine America’s prime position in the world.”

The lawmakers continue, “While the Biden Administration “assesses,” Huawei grows stronger, entrenches deeper in the global economy, and advances PLA military capabilities. According to the Wall Street Journal, Huawei predicted that its revenue grew by nine percent in 2023, with a 64 percent increase in domestic smartphone sales. The company gained domestic market share for both PCs and smartphones. It is clear from these trends that Huawei, a blacklisted company that was on the ropes just a few years ago, is making a comeback. It is doing so because the Biden Administration, led by your department, is failing to protect American ingenuity.”
