U.S. unveils new charges against Chinese telecom giant Huawei


The Department of Justice unveiled new charges against Chinese telecommunications giant Huawei on Thursday, accusing the company of orchestrating a successful "decades-long" scheme to steal trade secrets from U.S. technology companies.

U.S. prosecutors are pressing charges against Chinese telecom giant Huawei, alleging the company did business with Iran and North Korea to skirt sanctions.
Mike Papantonio and Trial Lawyer Magazine editor Farron Cousins take a look back at the 2010 BP oil spill, which new studies show was actually far worse than reported. BP had made concerted efforts with media outlets to downplay the impact of its Deepwater Horizon spill, which ravaged marine ecosystems in the Gulf of Mexico and surrounding waters. Also, attorney and former media darling Michael Avenatti is found guilty of extorting Nike for millions of dollars. Plus, Juul is facing the fire as ads for their e-cigarettes have been found popping up on websites designed for teens, including Cartoon Network and Nickelodeon.

Then, RT correspondent Michele Greenstein walks us through charges of racketeering and intellectual property theft filed by the DOJ against Chinese telecomm giant Huawei. This is just the latest development in a long saga of disputes between the Chinese 5G developer and the U.S. government. Is this feud truly rooted in security concerns, or is it actually economic?

Finally, legal journalist Mollye Barrows discusses a horrific case of sex trafficking and extortion unearthed just outside the Sarah Lawrence College campus in New York. Lawrence Ray exploited his own daughter and her peers to run a ‘sex cult' out of her dorm room, which Ray himself also lived in.
