Chinese Woman Arrested at Trump Resort With Malware on Thumb Drive

Trump Says He’s Not Concerned About Potential Espionage After Mar-a-Lago Arrest: ‘Just a Fluke’

Trump weighed in on the arrest late Wednesday, claiming he was "not concerned at all" about security at Mar-a-Lago, CNN reported.

Asked about the reports on the Chinese espionage, Donald Trump told reporters at the White House: "Well, I saw the story".

The woman was arrested over the weekend after she told conflicting stories about why she was at Mar-a-Lago. No, I think that was just a fluke situation and I think that the person sitting at the front desk did a very good job, to be honest with you.

Two current government sources said that the Federal Bureau of Investigation was looking into possible counter-intelligence implications of the incident, however.

Secret service agent Samuel Ivanovich said in court that Zhang "freely and without difficulty conversed" in English and was "verbally aggressive" with authorities.

The Senator also references an alleged attempt on Saturday by a woman named Yujing Zhang to enter Mar-a-Lago while carrying a thumb drive full of malware. "She was able to see things that other people were not", Donald Trump said.

The incident happened several weeks after security at the club came under scrutiny when photos surfaced of Cindy Yang attending events at Mar-a-Lago.




Because the resort has its own staff and reception area, the Secret Service cannot stop members and guests from entering, although it can screen guests and keep them away from the president and his family, according to a Secret Service statement issued Tuesday.

Representative Elijah Cummings, the Democratic chairman of the U.S. House Oversight Committee, said the Secret Service, which protects the president, will brief him and top committee Republican Jim Jordan on the incident.

"Me and my family hasn't been in the United States for a long time so we're not familiar with the laws and also with which attorneys are good", she said through an interpreter.

Lee runs a group called the United Nations Chinese Friendship Association, similar to the name of the event Zhang said she wished to attend.

Chuck Schumer of NY and other Democrats wrote to FBI Director Christopher Wray on Wednesday. "No, I'm not concerned at all", he told reporters at the White House on Wednesday.

Among other things, the California Democrat requested to know the status of the investigation and whether China has attempted to conduct "influence operations" at the club.
