Chinese Woman With Malware, Tech Devices Bluffs Her Way into Trump’s Mar-a-Lago
A Chinese woman carrying a thumb drive with malware, as well as multiple passports and electronic devices, was arrested at the Mar-a-Lago resort in Florida on Saturday while US President Donald Trump was there. She bluffed her way past security multiple times before being caught, according to court documents.
Yujing Zhang, 32, She got past the front door by using her common last name to impersonate a relative of a real member of the exclusive Florida club, and she got through multiple layers of security at the US president’s West Palm Beach resort over the weekend by pretending she didn’t speak English well, was confused about her destination, and was there to attend a US-China international event.
According to a Saturday deposition by Secret Service agent Samuel Ivanovich in the US District Court for the Southern District of Florida, Zhang had two passports, four cell phones, a laptop and a hard drive with her, as well as a thumb drive that contained “malicious malware.”
Zhang appeared in court on Monday and was charged with making false statements to a federal officer and entering or remaining in a restricted building or grounds. The charges could cost her hundreds of thousands of dollars in fines as well as multiple years in prison and either probation or supervised release, according to the affidavit. Her detention hearing is scheduled for April 8.
The woman bluffed her way into the resort by pretending she was a member who wanted to use the pool, but didn’t speak very good English. The guard reportedly assumed she was the daughter of a real club member named Zhang and gave her entry.
When a golf cart valet picked up Zhang, she said she wasn’t sure where she was wanted to go, so the driver simply took her to the main reception area, according to Ivanovich’s deposition.
Once there, however, the receptionist determined Zhang shouldn’t have been on the grounds since she claimed to be attending a United Nations Chinese-American Association event that didn’t exist. Zhang told Secret Service officers the same story, claiming her friend “Charles” directed her via WeChat to travel from Shanghai to attend the event.
CHINESE NATIONAL ARRESTED AT MAR-A-LAGO MAY HAVE TIES TO TRUMP-CONNECTED FORMER SPA OWNER
There Are A Lot Of People With The Same Surname Involved In This Case.
Zhang is the third-most common name in China, but is far more common there than the surname Smith, which is the most common in the U.S. In China, one in 14 people have the surname Zhang, while in the U.S., one in 121 have the last name Smith.
In the U.S., however, only one in 4,686 people have the Zhang surname, making it only the 515th most common in America.
The South China Morning Post offered a possible explanation for the spy-like intrusion, noting that Zhang may have been referring to an event promoted by Cindy Yang, the Republican businesswoman at the center of a Florida spa sex trafficking scandal that has ensnared New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft.
We learned that in 2013 Yang sold one of the spas under investigation to a woman named Zhang Hua, who has been charged with racketeering and running a house of prostitution. Yang also has since set up a separate organization that attempts to capitalize on her access to high-profile Republicans, and works with Chinese-American event planner Charles Lee to host her events.
Yang had previously announced she was hosting an event called the “International Leaders Elite Forum” at Mar-a-Lago the day of Zhang Yujing’s arrest, but it was canceled when the sex spa scandal erupted. Secret Service agents who saw the Chinese woman’s invitation said they could not read it because it was written in Chinese.
In another weird coincidence, however, Yang’s mother shares the same surname as the mysterious intruder. The incident has occurred amidst high-level talks between Washington and Beijing aimed at ending the trade war between their two nations.
White House press pool reports later confirmed that Trump was on the Mar-a-Lago campus at the time of the episode, although there’s no indication Zhang was ever near the president, AP noted.
AP also noted there’s no indication that Zhang was connected to Li Yang, a Chinese native who owns a Florida massage parlor and marketed her business to Chinese businessmen with the promise she could get them into Mar-a-Lago and meet with Trump by using photos of herself with the head of state.
