Well both sides are(or seem to be) sticking to their guns right now:

One thought, there’s an assumption that the chip would need to be storing code, however perhaps the chip could be waiting for something else to join the party, another chip or even a softwhere based incursion.

Corporate suicide, but what the issues around the supply chain still ring true, especially in certain circumstances and environments.

Very unusual for intelligence agencies to comment. Some more goodness:
