Rep. Michael McCaul (R-TX): US competition with China, Russia, North Korea, and Iran | LIVE STREAM

America’s geopolitical challenges have rarely been more complex. China, Russia, and Iran threaten American interests in crucial areas of the globe. At the same time, rogue states such as North Korea and Syria threaten American security and pose complex regional challenges. Each power’s challenge to American statecraft is unique, and American policymakers have struggled to develop a cohesive strategy to deal with these threats.
Is the United States equipped to deal with the challenges these powers pose to our national security, diplomatic, and economic policies? How do leaders in Congress regard the rise of the revisionists? What steps can they take to rebuild and refocus American power around competition with great and rising powers while addressing the thorny problems of North Korea and Syria?

Join AEI’s Gary Schmitt as he welcomes House Homeland Security Committee Chairman and Senior Member of the House Foreign Affairs Committee Michael McCaul (R-TX) for a conversation on these important issues.

President Trump China Meeting Press Conference Amid Huawei Criminal Charge

U.S. charges 13 criminal counts against Huawei, right before trade talks between Washington, Beijing

中, 화웨이 기소에 강력 반발...무역협상 안개속

While trade negotiations between the United States and China are scheduled to take place in Washington on Wednesday,... the U.S. has slammed China's telecoms giant Huawei with 13 criminal counts.
Unsurprisingly,... Beijing has reacted furiously,... insisting the move is politically motivated.
Kim Hyo-sun reports.
The U.S. has announced sweeping charges against China's Huawei and its chief financial officer, Meng Wanzhou,... ahead of crunch trade negotiations between Washington and Beijing to end their prolonged trade war.
Washington hammered the Chinese telecommunications company with 13 criminal counts including bank and wire fraud,... as well as trying to steal trade secrets from its German rival T-Mobile.
The U.S. Justice Department accuses Huawei of violation U.S. sanctions against Iran by doing business with Tehran through a subsidiary it tried to hide.

There are additional troubling allegations in the indictment as well including that Huawei lied to the federal government and attempted to obstruct justice by concealing and destroying evidence and by moving potential government witnesses back to China.

China strongly opposed the move,... urging Washington to stop suppressing Chinese companies.

It's been some time since the U.S. started to use its state power to smear and suppress certain Chinese enterprises in an attempt to throttle their legitimate operations. Their intentions are strongly political and manipulative.

Beijing's industry ministry also insists the Huawei indictments are unfair and immoral.

Just as the foreign ministry said, with no evidence, they're using their state power to discredit and attack designated companies. This sort of behavior is unfair and immoral.

Amid the ongoing tensions,... China's trade delegation led by Vice Premier Liu He is now in Washington for high-level trade talks beginning Wednesday local time.
Many are concerned the Huawei indictments could complicate the trade talks,... but U.S. Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin is trying to separate the Huawei case with the trade talks,... saying he expects to see significant progress this week.

U.S. Justice Department accuses Huawei of fraud, intellectual property theft

美, 中과 워싱턴 무역협상 이틀 앞두고 화웨이 전격 기소

The U.S. Justice Department has filed several federal charges against Chinese telecoms giant Huawei.
The move comes just two days before.... Washington and Beijing are scheduled for their next round trade talks.
Ro Aram reports.
Monday's move could potentially complicate efforts by Washington and Beijing to negotiate an end to their trade war.
It could also complicate matters between China and Canada, as the Justice Department also charged Huawei's chief financial officer, Meng Wanzhou, who was arrested in Canada last month on a U.S. request.
Huawei was charged with accusations of bank and wire fraud, as well as trying to steal trade secrets from rival T-Mobile and giving incentives to employees to carry out such illicit activities.
Others include working to skirt U.S. sanctions on Iran.
Washington claims Huawei misled the U.S. and a global bank about its relationship with an Iranian affiliate.

By claiming that Skycom was a separate company and not an affiliate of Huawei which it actually controlled Huawei allegedly asserted that all of its Iranian business was in compliance with the American sanctions. These alleged false claims led banks to do business with the company and therefore to unknowingly violate our laws…

Both Huawei and Ms Meng deny the allegations.
Washington's crackdown on Huawei began about ten years ago amid concerns the Chinese government could use the firm's technology for spying.
Huawei has insisted it is not under government control.
U.S. Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross, meanwhile, insisted Monday's indictment was separate from on-going trade talks with Beijing.
President Trump will meet Chinese Vice Premier Liu He this week in Washington to try to resolve the trade dispute.

U.S., China kick off 2-day high level meeting to end months-long trade war

미•중, 워싱턴 무역담판 착수…무역전쟁 마침표 찍을까

Top officials from the United States and China kicked off a critical round of talks on Wednesday aimed at ending their six-month trade war.
For more on this and other news around the world we turn to our Ro Aram…
Aram… what do we know so far?

Well Mark… Negotiations are underway, but as of yet, we don't what has been said between both sides.
The two-day meeting is taking place next door to the White House.
It is the highest-level talks since President Trump and his Chinese counterpart Xi Jinping agreed to a 90-day truce in their trade war at the end of last year.
The U.S. delegation is being led by Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer and Beijing's Vice Premier Liu He is heading the Chinese side.
President Trump plans to meet with Mr. Liu at the conclusion of the talks on Thursday.
The discussions come as both countries face a March 2nd deadline to reach a trade agreement.
If they don't, then the Trump administration will raise tariffs on 200 billion dollars of Chinese imports and Beijing will likely retaliate.
The meeting also comes just days after the U.S. Justice Department slapped a slew of federal charges against Chinse telecoms giant Huawei and its chief financial officer, Meng Wanzhou.
The White House insists this issue is separate from trade talks.
But given Beijing's heated reaction, it is hard to imagine that Chinese officials will not raise the issue.
Meanwhile, the U.S. side will likely bring up its claim that China is stealing American intellectual property rights.
It is also pushing for China to end policies that Washington says force U.S. companies to transfer technology to Chinese firms.
Beijing denies the allegations and may not be willing to address these issues.
On the whole, hopes for the negotiations to end well are high, but expectations are low.

The Point: Why is a Chinese diplomat calling the Huawei case a 'political witch hunt'?

The Chinese ambassador to Canada has called Canada's detention of Huawei's CFO a political witch hunt. In an article published on Thursday on the Canadian newspaper The Globe and Mail, Lu Shaye suggested that the detention of Ms. Meng Wanzhou is not a mere judicial case, but a premeditated political action in which the United States wields its regime power to witch hunt a Chinese high-tech company out of political consideration.

He also argued the allegation made against Huawei by the U.S. and its allies has no evidence and has sown fear and misled people. Meanwhile, an exclusive article by an Australian newspaper has reviewed how spy agency chiefs in the so-called Five Eyes cooked up a campaign to kill Huawei which culminated in Meng’s arrested. On what grounds has the Chinese ambassador called the case a political witch hunt? What's really behind the alliance between Chinese telecom giants?
Guests joining the discussion are Ross Feingold, Senior Advisor DC International Advisory in Taipei; Prof. Wang Yiwei, Jean Monnet Chair Professor at Renmin University in Beijing.

White House Press Briefing with Sarah Sanders, live stream | January 28, 2019

White House press secretary Sarah Sanders is holding the first formal briefing with reporters since before the government shut down last month. The last time Sanders formally fielded questions from reporters in the briefing room was Dec. 18, before the government shutdown and when James Mattis was still the secretary of defense.

Sanders is sure to get questions on how the president plans to negotiate with Democrats to find border wall funding and avoid another shutdown before the funding clock runs out again on Feb. 15. Mr. Trump made a surprise announcement that he would reopen the federal government last week, ending the longest shutdown in U.S. history. She's also sure to receive questions on the indictment of Roger Stone, the president's associate who advised the campaign and faces charges of lying to Congress and obstructing justice.

VOA news for Tuesday, January 29th, 2019

VOA news for Tuesday, January 29th, 2019
Thanks to
VOA news. I'm Christopher Cruise reporting.
Federal prosecutors have unsealed two separate indictments against China's Huawei Technologies, its chief financial officer and several affiliates for financial fraud and theft of American intellectual property.
This is FBI Director Christopher Wray: The charges unsealed today are the result of years of investigative work by the FBI and our law enforcement partners. Both sets of charges expose Huawei's brazen and persistent actions to exploit American companies and financial institutions, and to threaten the free and fair global marketplace.
As you can tell from the number and magnitude of the charges, Huawei and its senior executives repeatedly refused to respect U.S. law and standard international business practices.”
The announcement comes amid trade tensions between the United States and China and stepped up U.S. scrutiny of Chinese economic espionage.
The Trump administration is imposing sanctions on Venezuela's state-run oil company. It says it wants to preserve the assets for the Venezuelan people.
National Security Advisor John Bolton said at the White House on Monday Venezuelans have had enough of oppression and economic hardship caused by President Nicholás Maduro and his regime.
Canada will host an urgent meeting of the Lima Group to talk about the political crisis in Venezuela.
The group includes Canada and 13 Latin American countries. It will convene on February 4 in Ottawa to discuss how to support opposition leader Juan Guaidó, who declared himself interim leader of Venezuela despite disputed President Nicholás Maduro's victory in 2018 elections.
This is VOA news.
The EU will soon launch an alternative channel to send money to Iran that would sidestep U.S. sanctions against the Islamic republic.
Associated Press correspondent Charles De Ledesma reports.
The channel, the special purpose vehicle, or SPV, is part of EU efforts to keep alive an international agreement aimed at curbing Iran's nuclear ambitions. The future of the U.N. pact with Iran was thrown into doubt when President Donald Trump pulled out last year slamming it as a horrible, one-sided deal.”
Now German Foreign Minister Heiko Maas says the EU's aim with the SPV is to ensure that business not sanctioned by the U.S. can be upheld, and that there is a suitable instrument for international payments.”
The U.S. special representative for Afghan reconciliation is urging direct talks between the Taliban and the Kabul government.
Zalmay Khalilzad told The New York Times that he was confirming details in a draft peace deal aimed at ending the 17-year-long conflict in the country.
He said in Kabul that the deal framework would have to be fleshed out before it becomes an agreement, but he stressed the Taliban have committed to do what is necessary that would prevent Afghanistan from ever becoming a platform for international terrorist groups or individuals.”
Turkey's foreign minister on Monday met with the U.N. judicial expert investigating the murder of Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi The investigator will be in Turkey until Saturday for a series of meetings, including one with Istanbul's chief prosecutor.
Hundreds of thousands of American government workers returned to work on Monday after almost five weeks of being home. But some of them fear another shutdown could happen.
Associated Press correspondent Ben Thomas reports.
President Trump puts the odds of congressional negotiators crafting a deal to end the standoff over a border wall at less than 50-50.”
Trump tells The Wall Street Journal he really doesn't think they'll strike a deal he'd accept. And he is pledging to build a wall either way using executive powers to declare a national emergency if necessary.
Asked whether he thought the president was willing to go through a second shutdown, acting White House chief of staff Mick Mulvaney told CBS's Face the Nation Yeah, I think he actually is.”
The spending bill Trump signed Friday funds the shuttered agencies only until February 15.
Facebook says it's tightening up requirements for political adds in the European Union ahead of bloc-wide elections scheduled for the spring.
It's the latest effort by the company to fight misinformation on its platforms.
The rules it imposed are similar to those the company put in place last year in the United States, Britain and Brazil.

LIVE: Biden and Trudeau Hold First Virtual Bilateral Meeting at the White House

President Joe Biden met virtually with Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau on Tuesday, in what the White House is billing as the first formal bilateral meeting of Biden’s presidency.

“The United States has no closer friend -- no closer friend than Canada,” Biden said at the White House. “As the leaders of major democracies, we have the responsibly to prove that democracy can still deliver for our people.”

Trudeau called the talks “a great opportunity” and said topics of discussion would include recovering from the coronavirus pandemic and creating jobs.

Tuesday’s meeting is intended by the U.S. as a coronavirus-era replacement for the tradition of a new president taking his first foreign trip to Canada. The talks provide an opportunity for the leaders to repair relations strained by the Trump administration’s hard-line approach to trade negotiations and Biden’s decision to cancel a permit for TC Energy Corp.’s Keystone XL oil pipeline linking oil-rich Alberta to Nebraska.

The leaders are expected to unveil a so-called road map to improving cooperation across a range of topics, from climate change to the coronavirus.

As part of that effort, Biden and Trudeau will announce a forthcoming ministerial meeting on climate and the resumption of the Cross-Border Crime Forum, an annual gathering of top law enforcement officials from each country to examine ways to collaborate on counterterrorism and efforts to combat smuggling and organized crime.

Although Biden and Trudeau are more closely aligned politically than former President Donald Trump and the Canadian leader, sore spots have emerged with the new administration. Biden said on his first day in office that the Keystone pipeline isn’t “consistent with my administration’s economic and climate imperatives.”

Trudeau has called the project -- which would have shipped more than 800,000 barrels of crude a day from Alberta’s oil sands to U.S. refineries -- a key priority, and voiced his concern over the cancellation in a phone call with Biden last month.

Trudeau may also press Biden on another early executive action: his “Buy American” order that strengthened requirements for federal spending, clamping down on contractors’ use of foreign suppliers. That could spell trouble for Canadian suppliers who sell to American companies that contract with the federal government.

Trudeau is expected to seek waivers similar to those granted during the Obama administration to help protect Canadian businesses. But White House aides said on Tuesday that they didn’t anticipate the president offering any guarantees on procurement policy.

Canada is also likely to again seek U.S. assistance in pressuring China to release former diplomat Michael Kovrig and businessman Michael Spavor, who were detained in 2018 after Canada arrested Meng Wanzhou, a Chinese executive with Huawei Technologies Co. The U.S. has sought the extradition of Meng -- who is the daughter of the company’s founder -- to try her on fraud charges. Her extradition case remains pending in Canadian courts.

Following a smaller meeting with the leaders and their foreign policy teams, Trudeau and Biden will participate in a larger virtual gathering featuring additional members of their respective Cabinets. Once that discussion concludes, the leaders are expected to deliver a joint statement to the media.

Trump Highlights China Economy, Opioids lawsuit

(16 Aug 2018) White House economic adviser Larry Kudlow told a cabinet meeting that China's economy looks terrible.
Kudlow said business investment is collapsing and that investors are moving money from China to the US.
Meanwhile, President Donald Trump is asking Attorney General Jeff Sessions to file a federal lawsuit against certain companies that supply and manufacture opioids.
Speaking during a Cabinet meeting Thursday, Trump said he's directing Sessions to file a separate lawsuit, rather than joining existing lawsuits filed by states affected by the spread of the often-lethal, highly-addictive drugs.
Trump is asking Sessions to look out for opioids coming into the U.S. from China and Mexico, saying those countries are sending their garbage and killing our people.
Trump added: It's almost a form of warfare.
It was not immediately clear if or when a federal suit would be filed. A barrage of suits have been filed nationwide against distributors and manufacturers in recent months amid the opioid epidemic.

The U.S. Department of Justice's China Initiative | Margaret Lewis

The Department of Justice launched the China Initiative in November 2018 to counter national security threats emanating from the People’s Republic of China (PRC). In February 2020, the Federal Bureau of Investigation announced that it had launched about a thousand active investigations under the Initiative; the China Initiative is gaining momentum.

In a forthcoming article, Seton Hall University Law Professor Margaret K. Lewis argues that using “China” as the glue connecting cases under the Initiative’s umbrella creates an overly inclusive conception of the threat, and attaches a criminal taint to entities that have an even tangential connection to China. She also contends that implying that part of the justification for prosecution and resulting punishment is a shared connection to China is problematic when assessed in light of the goals of deterrence, incapacitation, rehabilitation, and retribution. A better path would be to discard the “China Initiative” framing, focus on cases’ individual characteristics, and broaden the Department of Justice’s interactions with non-governmental experts.

On June 9, 2020, the National Committee hosted a virtual program with Margaret Lewis where she discussed her article.
