The federal indictments announced Monday against Huawei Technologies are part of a larger U.S. campaign against Huawei and other Chinese companies that could have expensive ramifications for security worldwide and for U.S. consumers at home.

Acting Attorney General Mark Whitaker personally announced the pair of grand jury indictments in Washington, signaling the gravity with which the Trump administration regards the cases.

The announcement came as the Trump administration prepares to receive a Chinese trade delegation in Washington this week.
