Yujing Zhang, the Chinese national accused of sneaking into Mar-a-Lago, can now review the evidence against her ahead of her trial.

Zhang, 33, is charged with trespassing and lying to federal agents when the Secret Service detained her at President Trump's club on March 30.

A filing from the Department of Justice Tuesday detailed the evidence against her that prosecutors have turned over. It includes jail calls involving Zhang, surveillance videos, interviews, and data from electronic devices found on her last March.

The discovery was turned over on one thumb drive and two DVDs to Zhang at the Broward County Jail, where she is awaiting trial. Tuesday's filing notes that she "will have computer access at the BSO facility to review the digital evidence if she wants to review it."

Earlier this month, a federal judge said he would allow the prosecution to file secret evidence in the case because it had national security information.

In June, a judge ruled Zhang could represent herself in the case. The trial is scheduled to begin August 19.
