China providing services to woman arrested at Mar-a-Lago

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

Federal officials believe that Zhang is from China, although she was carrying passports that said "Republic of China" - the official name for Taiwan, according to the criminal complaint filed by the Secret Service.

Federal officials are looking into whether a Chinese woman arrested at President Donald Trump's Mar-a-Lago club with a device containing computer malware was part of a larger effort to gain access to the president and do potential harm.

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.

Trump is also commending the Secret Service, saying he "could not be happier" with their conduct and that the result was "good". The Justice Department said Zhang was carrying two Chinese passports, and prosecutors have charged her with making a false statement to a federal officer and entering restricted property.

The Communist Party newspaper Global Times, known for its strident nationalism, ran a lengthy report on the Zhang and Yang cases, accusing the USA media of hyping them as examples of Chinese "Trojan horses" entering Mar-a-Lago out of an excess of "Cold War thinking". In a hearing before Magistrate Judge William Matthewman in West Palm Beach, Zhang was read the charges against her and told that she could face up to six years in prison if convicted, according to audio of the hearing obtained by CNN.

Secret service agent Samuel Ivanovich said in court that Zhang "freely and without difficulty conversed" in English and was "verbally aggressive" with authorities. Secret Service has done a fantastic job since day one. "I think, probably, we will see what happens, where she is from, who she is", President Trump told reporters.

White supremacists pose a "persistent, pervasive" threat, FBI Director Christopher Wray testified Thursday on Capitol Hill. Schiff asked further what steps the Trump Organization has taken to prevent "intelligence collection at the club" and how the "revenue raising goals of the private club" conflict with imperatives of protecting state secrets.

The woman was arrested over the weekend after she told conflicting stories about why she was at Mar-a-Lago.
