Secret Service Director Randolph Alles has reportedly been fired by President Trump after a Chinese woman carrying malware and hard drives made her way into Mar-a-Lago two weeks ago.

More on the breach from CBS Miami

A Chinese woman accused of illegally entering President Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago club with a flash drive containing malware, also had numerous electronic devices and thousands in cash stashed in her hotel room.

That from federal prosecutors Monday at Yujing Zhang’s detention hearing in West Palm Beach who are outlining their case as to why Zhang is a flight risk.

Prosecutors say they found multiple electronic devices in her hotel room, including a signal detector that can seek out detect hidden cameras, another cell phone, nine USB drives and five SIM cards. There were also several credit cards in her name.

There was $7,600 in cash and $7,500 of that was in $100 U.S. bills. She also had $663 in Chinese currency in her room at the Colony Hotel in Palm Beach County, according to prosecutors.

After the intrusion, the Secret Service issued a memo on security procedures for Mar-a-Lago.

"On March 30, 2019, physical screening was conducted by the Secret Service once Mar-a-Lago staff determined an individual was to be granted access to the property. After the first physical screening, Mar-a-Lago staff transported the individual by a shuttle to the next screening checkpoint," the memo stated. "Individuals are prohibited from disembarking the shuttle between screenings and the route is monitored by Secret Service personnel. After undergoing screening at the second Secret Service checkpoint the individual, per club protocol, was immediately met by club reception. The Mar-a-Lago reception staff then determined  that the individual should not have been authorized access by their staff and Secret Service agents took immediate action resulting in the arrest of the individual."

The Secret Service agents were busy getting secret service at the Orchids of Asia Day Spa when the event occurred.

Remember when the Salahi couple crashed a White House state dinner party in 2009?

Only the party planner got fired.

“after a Chinese woman carrying malware and hard drives made her way into Mar-a-Lago two weeks ago.”

well, just so long as no hookers, booze or drugs were involved in foreign countries and no one shot themselves, i’m not sure what the big deal is ...

“Alles to leave post shortly”

What’s this “shortly” crap? When someone at that level with so much power and knowledge is fired, he’s GONE. Now. Does Trump even know how much damage someone like that can do in an hour’s time? I’m wondering about this “smart businessman” stuff; it makes no sense.

Hmm. This is the first time I’ve seen this firing was related to the Mar-a-Lago incident.

Every other article indicated it was tied to Kirstjen Nielsen quitting.

This is the feds we are talking about, not the private sector. There are countless Freepers who work for Uncle Sam and I know you cannot just hand someone a pink slip and escort them out the building, like in the real world. It takes time to get process your security clearance, badge etc and they slow walk it. If you are a true conservative, you know the difference between private vs public, govt and private sector etc..
