A Mar-A-Lago Incident Just Turned Into a Full Blown Espionage Scandal
The Chinese woman arrested wat President Trump’s Mar-a-Lago resort reportedly had multiple USB drives, a signal detector used to find hidden cameras and thousands of dollars in cash in her hotel room.
Federal prosecutors revealed on Monday that Yujing Zhang also had a second cellphone and five SIM cards in her room,
Officials said she had several credit cards in her name and thousands of dollars in $100 bills,
When Zhang was arrested late last month, she was reportedly carrying a cellphone, two passports and a flash drive containing malware, prosecutor Rolando Garcia told the court, according to the network.
Authorities said she initially told Secret Service agents that she was there to swim and was allowed in when they saw she had the same surname as a club member and mistook her for his daughter. Once inside, she told a receptionist she was there for a nonexistent meeting of the United Nations Chinese American Association, they added.
Federal investigators have reportedly opened a probe into potential Chinese espionage at the Florida club, according to CNN.
