Mar-a-Lago intruder pleads to be set free from jail. Judge says she's still playing games.

(McClatchy) The Chinese national who was arrested while allegedly trying to lie her way into the president’s club in March pleaded with a judge to end her time in jail in a Tuesday appearance in federal court in Fort Lauderdale.

Wearing brown, jail-issued shirt and pants, Yujing Zhang, 33, entered the courtroom Tuesday afternoon and was helped to her seat by a female marshal when she appeared to struggle to walk. Zhang then crumpled to one side in her chair, covering her face. She sat up, however, when it was her turn to address the judge.

“I don’t want to continue staying in prison. I don’t think my health can continue,” Zhang said through an interpreter. (On previous occasions, Zhang had spoken for herself in English.)
Zhang was charged in an indictment with lying to a federal agent and trespassing after her foray onto the grounds of Mar-a-Lago. The charges could bring a combined six years in prison if she is convicted. The trial is scheduled to begin on Sept. 3.

Zhang appeared in court Tuesday to respond to a proposal made by Assistant U.S. Attorney Rolando Garcia on Aug. 13 that she consent to a non-jury trial. However, Zhang told the court that day she had been feeling dizzy, possibly as a result of low blood pressure, and could not make a decision at the time.

On Tuesday, Zhang again refused to respond when U.S. District Judge Roy Altman repeatedly asked her whether she preferred a jury or non-jury trial.

“I don’t want either,” Zhang finally responded.

1. What's Trump hiding in Mar-a-Lago? Should it be hidden there?

2. That's a good question!

There must be something of value there she was looking for, she had with her a signal detector that can seek out and detect hidden cameras.
