In another blow to Huawei, the current acting FCC commissioner, Democrat Geoffrey Starks says the US government should replace Chinese telecommunications gear currently installed on US networks.

As you are aware, the Commerce Department added Huawei to the BIS entity list in May of this year over concerns the Chinese government’s connection to Huawei could compromise US national security. Huawei’s addition to the entity list prohibits US companies from supplying parts and service to Huawei.

The reason the FCC commissioner wants to remove all Huawei equipment is out of fear foreign governments may disrupt US communication networks during times of national emergencies.
