Trump calls out Obama official hired by HUAWEI as lobbyist

In January, the DOJ charged Huawei, which is linked to the Chinese government, on several counts of fraud. 

DC: President Donald Trump called out an Obama-era White House cybersecurity official on Twitter Sunday night for taking a position lobbying for Chinese telecommunications giant Huawei.

“Chinese Telecom Giant Huawei hires former Obama Cyber Security Official as a lobbyist. This is not good, or acceptable!” Trump wrote, tagging Fox News and Fox News host Steve Hilton.

Samir Jain is the former senior director for cybersecurity policy at the White House National Security Council and registered with Congress to lobby for Huawei on March 27. He now works for law and lobbying firm Jones Day.

Jain worked for the White House from 2016 to 2017 and for the Justice Department as an associate deputy attorney general from 2014 to 2015, according to his Jones Day bio page. MORE

  1. Well the obvious answer is that Trump orders no one in Government to have contact with him and the Senate Majority and Congress Minority leader to instruct their members to not meet with him either. Make it public what Huawei is suspected of and guilty of.

    By the by, Canada is holding the Huawei CFO (and daughter of the company founder) in custody in Vancouver (well she spent some time in the slammer before being bailed out but has had her passp0rt taken, is restricted in her movements and followed by the cops) a extradition request from the US DOJ. Can you guys hurry up with the evidence needed to present to the Judge so we can ship her over the border to you because China is hammering us with contract cancellations, making life difficult for Canadians in china and cancelling agricultural orders and lottsa of other things.

  2. Samir Jain was presiding when China hacked the OPM and stole millions of government personnel employment records. The Huawei job was his payoff for treason. Nail his ass to the wall, PDT.

    Hey Dem/media…you still want to talk about security clearances in the Trump White House?

  3. There should be a permanent ban on Congress members and immediate family becoming lobbyists for foreign governments or state-owned companies.

    Problem is no one would vote for it so…Executive Order it.
