The Justice Department is indicting a telecom giant in China. In a briefing today, Acting Attorney General Matt Whitaker said Huawei conspired to steal trade secrets from T-Mobile. The indictment also alleges bank and wire fraud. Meanwhile, Whitaker urged China to do more to combat high-tech global crimes. Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen called it a case of "follow the money." Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross accused China of breaking U.S. export laws for years.
