The White House quietly loosened Trump-era restrictions on the sharing of U.S. technology with firms blacklisted for their ties to the Chinese Communist Party, including the controversial Huawei, The National Pulse can report.

The Commerce Department’s Bureau of Industry and Security (BIS) issued a revision to a Trump-era Export Administration Regulations (EAR) newly authorizing the release of certain technology and software for the alleged purpose of “standards setting and development in standards organizations.”

The quiet revision to Trump-era rules.

The move, which applies to firms that have been blacklisted by the U.S. government, was advertised as addressing confusion over whether American companies need a license to share “low-level”technology with sanctioned parties.

Notably, Huawei Technologies Co. – which was included in the original export ban, as telecommunications firm has extensive links to the Chinese Communist Party – will now be able to receive certain technologies from American companies.

Labeled a “national security threat” by the Trump administration and a decades-long Chinese military collaborator by the U.S. Department of Defense, Huawei routinely provides the regime backdoor access to its products, networks, and devices.

The State Department has also emphasized that the Chinese Communist Party uses Huawei as an “instrument not only for making money but also for pursuing the Party-State’s agenda and fulfilling its strategic objectives […] deeply enmeshed in Beijing’s system of oppression at home and its increasingly assertive strategic ambitions globally.”

The news comes after months of wrangling by Huawei lobbyists, those of whom include leading anti-Trump and pro-Biden individuals, such as Trump impeachment support Stephen Binhak, and the brothers of both Biden advisor Steve Richetti and newly minted Biden climate czar John Podesta.

Indeed, Reuters reported earlier in 2022 that the Chinese Communist-linked firm had paid Podesta’s brother Tony a whopping $1 million to represent the firm’s interests with the Biden White House.

Explaining the decision, the Commerce Department claimed:

“The changes made in this interim final rule address concerns from U.S. industry and other stakeholders about whether BIS licenses are required to release low-level technology for legitimate standards activities to parties on the Entity List stemming from the listing of Huawei and a number of its non-U.S. affiliates.”

“The rule amends the EAR to authorize the release of certain technology and software subject to the EAR to entities on the Entity List without a license when that release occurs in a standards-related activity with the intent that the resulting standard will be “published,” continues a press release describing the new rule, which will, in effect, allow for the export of previously banned technology to Huawei.
