#1 Did he get a bigger briefcase full of money from China for all that military tech than may did?

#3 They're trying to avoid equipment backdoored by the NSA.

Can't blame them. Frankly, the 'intelligence community' is a greater threat to the world than China will ever be.

#4 Equipment backdoored by the NSA? I dunno, Herb. Sounds more like Obama's NSA than Trump's. And is the NSA worse than GCHQ? Do you have any evidence to substantiate this assertion? And, if you're gonna get backdoored equipment, are you gonna chose China's? Isn't that kinda like treason?

May should get the sack for being in bed with Huawei. Williamson might have decided to take a bullet so he could let the world know.

The biggest scandal is that anybody in any western country would give a job like this to the Chinese.

#5 I mean, we have private vendors like Cisco who compete with Huawei. I won't say Cisco never did any work for the NSA but if they gave NSA a backdoor then we're all backdoored and it's for damn sure that Huawei's backdoor leads directly to Beijing. If May doesn't know that she's felony stupid.

#7 So we know for a fact that Wikileaks confirmed the NSA spies on us? Despite the NSA director testifying before Congress that they didn't? Lying is a crime, and he got away scot-free?

#8 Just because they spy doesn't mean they use Cisco equipment to do it. But, yes, Rice, Clapper, Comey and Brennan should be in jail.

#9 And remember, they used British GCHQ to spy on Trump. Now, whose equipment GCHQ use to spy on Trump?

If that was a crime, all of Congress would be in prison.

Boris is a combination of clown and sackless wonder. He should have been PM.
