U.S. Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL), who requested a CFIUS review of the sale in April 2022, slammed the decision.
"The Biden Administration is failing the American people. Faced by a crippling inability to produce its own cutting-edge tech R&D, China is making an aggressive play to buy and steal U.S. IP.
“By failing to block this latest sale, the Biden Administration has yet again demonstrated its total unwillingness to take this threat seriously. American competitiveness will suffer in the long term as a result." — Senator Rubio
