FBI Arrests 2nd Chinese National For Stealing Trade Secrets From Apple

Nothing puts a damper on trade talks like another indictment accusing a Chinese national of doing the exact thing (corporate espionage and stealing US trade secrets) that senior Trump Administration officials have been warning would be a deal-breaking for future negotiations.

Days after the US filed a sweeping indictment against Huawei that included charges its engineers stole trade secrets from T-Mobile (allegations that were also the subject of a civil suit) and mere hours after the beginning of high level trade talks in Washington, NBC Bay Area reported that the FBI has arrested another Chinese national working for Apple's secretive self-driving car project - code-named "Project Titan" - for stealing trade secrets. That's the second such arrest in six months (readers can find our report on the earlier arrest, which happened in July, here).

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I am having a Jean-Luc, double face palm, upon reading this.

Please remember that trade wars have a way of morphing into shooting wars, which I hope to heck will not happen, giving the dramatic escalation of events this last two weeks.
