NEW YORK -- Huawei Technologies should not be exploited as leverage in trade talks with Beijing, a bipartisan pair of China hawks on the Senate Intelligence Committee cautioned the Trump administration Thursday.

Virginia Democrat and committee Vice Chairman Mark Warner joined with Florida Republican Marco Rubio to warn of the security and privacy risks from the Chinese giant's telecom hardware in a letter to Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and U.S. Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer, expressing "deep concern" that the administration may make concessions on Huawei to "achieve a favorable outcome" in the negotiations.
