The Chinese businesswoman Yujing Zhang told federal agents she was attending a political event at President Trump’s Mar-a-Lago resort. But she already knew the event had been canceled, prosecutors said. She was convicted of trespassing and lying to agents.
Yujing Zhang brought a host of electronics equipment with her to President Trump’s Florida resort. She was convicted of trespassing and lying to federal agents.
FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. — A Chinese businesswoman who talked her way into President Trump’s Mar-a-Lago resort with a cache of electronics and a story about wanting to use the pool was convicted on Wednesday of trespassing and lying to federal agents.
But the three-day trial shed little light on the question of whether Ms. Zhang was a spy penetrating a place where the president regularly holds meetings or a tourist on the worst trip of her life. Some information federal prosecutors collected in the case was filed under seal and remains secret.
the charge of making a false statement to a federal agent
The trial got off to an unusual start on Monday, when during jury selection the judge asked why Ms. Zhang was appearing in court in her jail uniform. It was because she had not been supplied with any undergarments, she replied — though her standby public defenders said she had, in fact, been offered a full set of civilian clothing.
When the prosecutor, Michael R. Sherwin, proposed entering into evidence a list of text messages exchanged between Ms. Zhang and a contact of hers in Beijing, she objected, saying the texts were “personal” and “sensitive.”
Ms. Zhang had paid for a vacation package that included a banquet at Mar-a-Lago. She arrived at the resort with a laptop, an external hard drive and four cellphones.

The former owner, Cindy Yang, had sold the parlor and become active in Republican circles in Florida. She bundled donations for Mr. Trump, including some that had the appearance of being illegal donations by straw donors. The event she had been selling tickets to was canceled in the wake of the scandal.
raised questions about her motive for making the trip
“I’m not going,” she wrote back on March 27, after hearing that the Mar-a-Lago event was off. “Forget it,” she wrote in another text shortly afterward, referring to the trip.
As the trial started to wind down on Tuesday afternoon, the judge asked Ms. Zhang whether she planned to deliver a closing argument in her defense. “Um, I’m not ready,” she replied.
“She was bound and determined to get on the property,” he went on. “And she lied to everyone to get on that property.”

Yujing Zhang, would not have been 'Prosecuted, for (allegedly), 'Tresspasing on Orange Fuherer Trumpoops 'Estate'. If she is a member, of the 'K.K.K' Or Saudi genocidal Despots terrorists.' 如果你破译了这个，你手上有太多时间。 Her boss is CCP. Woman look deadly. An ugly woman, with nut-sized brain. She wanna come back bragging about her powerful connections, the first step of a con-artist to fool other Chinese.
FALSE FLAG OPERATION If she IS a spy, she should be fired. I know better ways of infiltration. Strange one this. Just someone who want to offer a deal. They approach people in the malls too who are by themselves (and they are not part of any mall store). She's the over the top version. Pfftt. Chinese spy is more what she is.
