Trump is 'not concerned' about Chinese espionage at Mar-a-Lago

The Latest: Trump unconcerned about Chinese woman's arrest

An arrest document in the federal district court of Palm Beach, Florida said Zhang Yujing tried to gain entry into Mar-a-Lago on Saturday, first presenting herself as a member and saying she was headed to the pool - despite not having a swimsuit.

In addition to exposing a security vulnerability, the report is a reminder that, for all the fulminations and disputes about the Russian Federation investigation, it was, at its base, a counterintelligence operation.

While speaking to reporters Wednesday, the president said the incident was a "fluke situation".

Secret Service has done a fantastic job from day one, says Donald Trump.

When she became aggressive under questioning, she was detained by the Secret Service and later charged with making false statements and entering a restricted area.

Ivanovich said Zhang carried four cellphones, a laptop computer, an external hard drive and a thumb drive containing computer malware.

The US president was staying at the Florida resort at the time.

Warren cites a Government Accountability Office report from last month, which found that the White House makes a final decision on who can enter the inner sanctum of Mar-a-Lago after vetting by the Secret Service.

Zhang faces a charge of trespassing and a charge of lying to federal agents for that attempt. He said Zhang said she had traveled from Shanghai to attend the nonexistent Mar-a-Lago event on the invitation of an acquaintance named "Charles", whom she only knew through a Chinese social media app.

In fact, Ronald Kessler, an author who has known Trump for years, said there's no more access to the president at the club than if he were in a restaurant.

AP reported Thursday that this likely referred to a Charles Lee, who runs the group and has been photographed with Li "Cindy" Yang, another Chinese national who, until recently, ran a spa and massage parlor in Florida that she marketed to Chinese executives with dubious claims she could get them into Mar-a-Lago and close to Trump.

"The apparent ease with which Ms. Zhang gained access to the facility during the president's weekend visit raises concerns about the system for screening visitors, including the reliance on determinations made by Mar-a-Lago employees".
