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

"Now, investigators with the FBI Counterintelligence Division in South Florida are trying to figure out who Zhang is, whether she is involved in a possible Chinese intelligence mission and whether there are links to Yang's social events at Trump's Mar-a-Lago", the newspaper said.

Asked about the reports on the Chinese espionage, Donald Trump told reporters at the White House: "Well, I saw the story". Yang has promoted events at Mar-a-Lago with ads targeting Chinese business executives hoping to gain access to Trump and his family, the Herald said. "We have extremely good control". Agents were later summoned and they say Zhang began arguing during an interview.

"Mar-a-Lago staff said that they first gave her access to the property on Saturday due to a potential language barrier issue", Burnett said.

Zhang Yujing, 32, showed two People's Republic of China passports as identification when questioned by Secret Service personnel at a security checkpoint outside the club, telling the officer that she was there to use the pool.

He also praised the job the Secret Service has done.

Ivanovich said Zhang carried four cellphones, a laptop computer, an external hard drive and a thumb drive containing computer malware. The group, which is not affiliated with the United Nations, has promoted the Chinese Communist Party, and advertised events at Mar-a-Lago as ways for Chinese businessmen to participate in President Xi Jinping's so-called business diplomacy agenda - essentially, an effort to have Chinese executives make friends with important people overseas.

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.

Trump said Tuesday he's waiting for more information about the incident.

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.

In a letter on Wednesday, House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff requested a briefing on the Zhang arrest from the heads of the FBI, Secret Service and Office of the Director of National Intelligence. She allegedly was told by "Charles" to talk to Trump's family about Chinese-American economic relations.
