“The Chinese company didn't steal this technology. It was given to them — by the U.S. Department of Energy. First in 2017, as part of a sublicense, and later, in 2021, as part of a license transfer. An investigation by NPR and the Northwest News Network found the federal agency allowed the technology and jobs to move overseas, violating its own licensing rules while failing to intervene on behalf of U.S. workers in multiple instances.”
Guess who was Secretary of Energy in 2017? - Rick Perry. Dancing With The Stars, GOP, and can’t think of the department he wanted to eliminate (DOE) Rick Perry. Trump/Ukraine phone call scandal Rick Perry. Traitor to the country, Rick Perry.
Added - it’s more complicated and involved a guy who fell down the slippery slope of chasing money, didn’t abide by agreements and essentially committed espionage by giving the Chinese access to everything. Perry was such a fucktard he may have just let it happen by being MIA.
