It was back in April when President Trump let go the head of the Secret Service, but he insisted it had nothing to do with the security breach at Mar-a-Lago in which a Chinese businesswoman illegally entered the club “carrying Chinese passports and a flash drive containing malware.”
That woman’s trial is finally getting underway in Florida, but it seems it hit a snag, as the AP’s Eric Tucker reports that the woman’s lack of underwear bogged down the proceedings.
FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. (AP) — The trial of a Chinese businesswoman charged with lying to a Secret Service agent and trespassing at Mar-a-Lago bogged down Monday before jury selection over her lack of underwear, the latest bizarre moment in a case that's been filled with them.

Strangest things. I think we need more details on this WTF? Report

There is an explanation:
Apparently Zhang (Chinese woman) came to court in her prison garb. Judge told her to wear civilian clothes. She said she could not bc she had no underwear. Eventually, she changed after court appointed lawyer said there was some in her cell.
