Federal investigators have opened a counterintelligence investigation into possible spying by the Chinese government following the arrest of a 32-year old woman at the Trump Organization's Mar-a-Lago private club in Florida last week, according to the Miami Herald.

Ivanovich said Zhang carried four cellphones, a laptop computer, an external hard drive and a thumb drive containing computer malware.

Trump was asked earlier tonight, "Mr. President, can we ask you are concerned that the Chinese may be trying to conduct some espionage against the united States by spying on you at Mar-a-Lago?"

The incident happened several weeks after security at the club came under scrutiny when photos surfaced of Cindy Yang attending events at Mar-a-Lago.

That New York Times report, Boot adds , hasn't been the only bad news for Trump this week. Trump recounted his history of frustration with the paper's reporting.

The official said the Federal Bureau of Investigation is doing what it has to do in these circumstances, when there is a foreign national involved and there is a possibility of counterintelligence or cyber security issues. She is being held in custody pending a court hearing next week.

The newspaper reported Zhang wasn't known to federal authorities before last weekend, when she passed Secret Service guards and entered the club, only to be stopped by a receptionist.

However, the Secret Service had a different story.

"No swimming apparel was found in Zhang's possession or on her person", it said.

Mar-a-Lago staff first gave Zhang access to the property on Saturday, in part, "due to a potential language barrier issue", the Secret Service agent wrote.

"Thus Zhang could not have any legitimate documentation authorizing her entry to Mar-a-Lago for such a goal", the court document cited Agent Samuel Ivanovich as saying.

"We have very good control", he added. The Washington Post reports that her name is Yujing Zhang. I think that particular woman did a very, very good job. "I haven't spoken to anyone", the president said.

In a letter on Wednesday, House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff requested a briefing on the Zhang arrest from the heads of the FBI, Secret Service and Office of the Director of National Intelligence.
