The U.S. Department of Justice is expected this afternoon to formally file criminal charges related to China-based Huawei.

Reuters on Monday reported that the Justice Department is holding a "China-related law enforcement action" at 4:30 p.m. Eastern.

The charges could be related to the December arrest by Canadian authorities of Meng Wanzhou, Huawei's chief financial officer and the daughter of Huawei Founder Ren Zhengfei. Meng is currently the subject of extradition talks between the U.S. and Canada.
