On Wednesday, Former CIA operative Bob Baer explained that President Donald Trump has failed to give up his privacy in exchange for securing America.


The FBI is investigating a Chinese woman identified as Yujing Zhang, who was unauthorized to enter Trump's Mar-a-Lago resort in Florida.

"Mar-a-Lago has been a nightmare for the Secret Service and the FBI right from the beginning. It's indefensible, and they know it. We have caught in this case, I believe is a Chinese agent because there is no cybersecurity firm in China which does not report to the intelligence service. So the chances of her directly or indirectly working for Chinese intelligence are very good," Baer said.

"This is their most important target. They don't understand Trump. He's a complete mystery. So there's an obligation of Chinese intelligence to get inside Mar-a-Lago because they can't get in the White House. So they go to Mar-a-Lago. What goes through this guy's mind? You know, good luck of the Chinese finding out."

"How are they going to get that?" CNN's Chris Cuomo asked.

"Audio. They go to their rooms, get on their cell phones, you wire the rooms or get in the WI-FI and you can get all those conversations going out. It's amazing what you can get."

"At the White House the Secret Service controls entry. They trace everyone who comes in. You can't do that at Mar-a-Lago with members and their children and the rest of it. You've got this flow of people. It's a place that is wide open," he explained.

"It's a tough balance," Cuomo said. "You want him to live his life, but we've got to protect him."

"When you become president, you sell your private life for the time you're in office. That's the deal. That's the contract. He's not abiding by it," Baer said.
