Do you know why the US sanctions #Hikvision?

Hikvision is too powerful. Within a few years, the Chinese company topped its US competitor Honeywell to become the world's No.1. When the US can't compete, they invent genocide bullshit and drives its rival out of the market.
Before 2000, the global market of the video surveillance security were dominated by the US companies Honeywell, Tyco, German company Bosch. In 2001, China established a company called Hikvision specializing in surveillance equipment. Six years later in 2007,

The DOJ filed a motion to bar #Huawei's defense lawyer James Cole from repping Hauwei in the DOJ's case against them.

James Cole is currently a partner at #SidleyAustin and was formerly Deputy Attorney General from 2011 to 2015 in #Obama's administration.
DOJ didn't say why they wanted him off the case, but while he was Deputy AG, the US government was collecting info & looking into if/how Huawei was violating US sanctions by doing business with #Iran.
BTW.....Sidley Austin is where Obama met Michelle. They also lobby for #China's spying outfit #Hikvision.
