That has some of the top officials in the U.S. worried that the servers could give the Chinese inside access to the information on those servers. The deal plans to expand Lenovo's presence in North Carolina to nearly 5,000. The agency called the Committee on Foreign Investment in the U.S. -- known as CFIUS for short -- will handle the investigation, The Inquirer reports. This deal was made all the way back in January, so what's taking the examiners so long to decide whether or not the deal will stand? At this point, it's not entirely certain.
