This wasn't totally unfounded though.

AT&T has reportedly backed out of its initial deal with Huawei, but the Mate 10 Pro will still be sold in the United States through a number of online stores.

Conaway's bill cites all the money quotes from past government reports, including the 2011 Congressional investigation that led to the 2012 bill, a U.S. China Commission that found ZTE, Huawei and others are "directly subject to direction by the Chinese Communist Party", and comments from former Central Intelligence Agency head General Michael Hayden who claimed Huawei had '"shared with the Chinese state intimate and extensive knowledge of foreign telecommunications systems it is involved with".

LAS VEGAS, NV - JANUARY 05, 2017: CEO of Huawei Consumer Business Group Richard Yu. In it, concerns were raised over the major US telecommunications carrier's collaboration with Huawei.

Taylor Swift's 'Reputation' Live Tour Could Earn Her Close To $500 Million
Taylor Swift must have a big reputation in New England, because she's just added a third show at Gillette Stadium this summer. Fact of the matter is this: old Taylor , who sold tickets for her concerts at $60 a pop, can't come to the phone right now.

Huawei Technologies Co Ltd's [HWT.UL] planned deal with USA carrier AT&T Inc (T.N) to sell its smartphones in the United States has collapsed at the 11th hour because of security concerns, people with knowledge of the matter said, in a blow to the Chinese firm's global ambitions. According to the reports, AT&T has decided not to carry Huawei's smartphones.

Huawei is the world's third largest smartphone manufacturer, right behind Apple and Samsung.

The firms have long fought concerns in Washington that their equipment could be subject to compromise by the Chinese government. Yu didn't hold back when it came to expressing his frustration.

"Everybody knows that in the U.S. market that over 90 percent of smartphones are sold by carrier channels", Yu said. "We are serving over 70 million people worldwide". "We are a company that really cares about cybersecurity and privacy protection".

As ever, CES remains the only place to geek out over all your favorite tech and watch some real-time company drama.
