3 Republican Senators have now come out to vehemently oppose President Joe Biden’s nominee for top intelligence lawyer due to his documented ties to Chinese tech giant Huawei.

As The Hill reports:

Christopher Fonzone, Biden’s pick to serve as general counsel at the Office of the Director of National Intelligence (ODNI), did legal work for Chinese tech giant Huawei after leaving the Obama administration’s National Security Council.

The company came under legal scrutiny starting in 2018, when Canadian authorities detained the firm’s chief financial officer at the request of the U.S. on financial fraud charges.

The U.S. government also has security concerns about Huawei due to potential ties to the Chinese government.

“You can’t work for Huawei and then work for the Director of National Intelligence,” Sen. Ben Sasse (Neb.) said in a statement Wednesday alongside fellow GOP Sens. Marco Rubio (Fla.) and Tom Cotton (Ark.).

With Biden attempting to stack his administration with a continual supply of nominees with deep financial ties to communist China will there be anything left for Republicans to salvage in 2024?
