Mar-a-Lago breach

A Chinese national carrying four cellphones, an external hard drive, a laptop, and a thumb drive infected with malicious software was arrested last week at Mar-a-Lago, President Trump’s private club. Yujing Zhang, 32, was charged with lying to Secret Service in order to gain entry to the club, initially saying she’d come for a swim. Zhang allegedly then told a Mar-a-Lago employee that she was there to attend a nonexistent United Nations Chinese American Association event. When federal agents tried to interview Zhang, she allegedly became “verbally aggressive,” claiming she was told by a friend to travel from Shanghai to Mar-a-Lago to speak with a member of President Trump’s family about U.S.-China economic relations. Federal authorities had reportedly been probing whether Chinese intelligence has targeted Mar-a-Lago, and are now examining whether Zhang is part of such an effort.
