Trump is 'not concerned' about Chinese espionage at Mar-a-Lago

  • Counterintelligence probe focuses on Mar-a Lago as a target of Chinese espionage report

Trump weighed in on the arrest late Wednesday, claiming he was "not concerned at all" about security at Mar-a-Lago, CNN reported. On Tuesday, the news broke, including that the woman was said to be in possession of Chinese passports and malware.

He contends that "we have very good control".

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

"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.

"Right, she is a fraud and she is not some innocent Chinese woman who happened to see an advertisement that said come meet the Trump's at Mar-a-Lago".

Congressional Democrats raised questions on Wednesday about security at the club but Trump brushed off the concerns, calling the incident a "fluke" and praising the Secret Service. 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.

According to PFT , this doesn't mean that the league will fold, but "it seems to be moving in that direction", the report says. The news outlet said the league is scheduled to hold a conference call with all of the teams and players Tuesday afternoon.

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.

"I saw the story", the president responded.

Chuck Schumer of NY and other Democrats wrote to FBI Director Christopher Wray on Wednesday.

Democrats in Congress last month called on the FBI to investigate Cindy Yang's activities, amid concerns that she could pose a national security threat.

During the second interview, Ms. Zhang told the authorities that a Chinese friend named Charles had told her to travel from Shanghai to Palm Beach in order to attend the United Nations friendship event and said that she should try to speak with a member of the president's family about Chinese and American foreign economic relations. 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.

Yang's website featured pictures of her with Trump and other members of his family and senior administration officials.
