    Remember Robert Kraft who got busted for soliciting prostitution in Florida at Orchids of Asia spa last January? Cindy Yang used to own it back in 2013 when it was known as Tokyo Day Spa, which is a chain she founded. She was not involved in the bust this year.

    Trump cheered Patriots to Super Bowl victory with founder of spa where Kraft was busted
    Ms. Yang has since branched out into politics. Selfie taken with Donald at Mar-a-lago.

    At first I thought this waa gotcha journalism, but it's looking worse and worse as time goes by. Not that His supporters or apologists will care, but this administration is making Grant's look law squeeky clean by comparison.

    She's what I'd call a groupie of the Trump family and the Republican Party.

    Yes, it looks real. The Herald's reporting is extensive and intensive. MotherJones is also in on it - while they may be leftward, they do real reporting with documentation and fact-checking.
    The White House says Trump "doesn't know" the massage parlor owner peddling access to him :
    After four days of silence, the White House has finally addressed questions about Cindy Yang, the massage parlor owner who sold Chinese business executives access to President Donald Trump and his family at Mar-a-Lago.

    “The President doesn’t know this woman,” Judd Deere, a White House spokesman, told Mother Jones on Tuesday.

    ...Though her family still owns other massage parlors, Yang in 2017 launched a new business, GY US Investments LLC, that offered to help clients gain access to Trump and members of his administration. On its website, disabled on Friday, the firm boasted it could arrange photos with the president along with opportunities to “interact with the president, the Minister of Commerce and other political figures,” and that it could set up a “White House and Capitol Hill Dinner.”

    Yang’s apparent ability to access Trump and other top Republican figures highlights a national security risk that could be exploited by foreign intelligence agencies, experts say. Yang is a member of the Florida branch of the Council for the Promotion of the Peaceful Reunification of China (CPPRC) and the Miami chapter of the American arm of the Chinese Association of Science and Technology. Both groups have direct links to China’s Communist Party. Analysts of Chinese foreign policy describe the CPPRC as an instrument to project Chinese influence around the world.

    Now we know why we are losing the trade war with CHY-na.

    They're selling access to Donald... imagine what they could accomplish with a product people wanted?

    From the link:

    Li Yang, 45, a self-made entrepreneur from China who started a chain of Asian day spas in South Florida. Over the years, these establishments —

    So the woman who started the chain of day spa’s sat next to the President and somehow that makes the President look bad.

    Good grief.

    You raise a point... given the class of criminals Donald usually associates with, a madam might be a step up.

    Makes good business sense, really... now that Cohen's no longer available for hush money payments.

    Remember when people said Trump didn't know who Stormy Daniels was? And then there were pictures of them together? And then people said it was just a picture together, and they didn't really know each other? And there was no affair? And he didn't pay her off? And step by step, it was all shown to be lies?

    I certainly do.

    I don't know if we'll get as many lies out of this story as that one, but we're already up to one.

    People should honestly start paying attention to me.

    Do you have proof showing she is a madam?

    I don’t recall any charges against her. The franchise owners have been, but nothing on her

    Got a link? I know you wouldn’t say something not factual.

    Good point. It’s probably that he makes her look bad.

    Read the links in the OP and Post #4.

    This may or may not impact on Donald and the other Republicans. We already know that people can buy access to the president by purchasing a membership to the club he owns, Mar-A-Lago. Several ambassadors have come from their ranks; they don't seem to have any particular expertise in foreign service, so why should Ms. Yang's selling access to him be any different?

    There is nothing in the OP article that leads me to believe that Trump, his family, or any Republican has any personal connection to this woman.

    However, there may be a concern about security according to the info. in the second article...

    Yang’s apparent ability to access Trump and other top Republican figures highlights a national security risk that could be exploited by foreign intelligence agencies, experts say. Yang is a member of the Florida branch of the Council for the Promotion of the Peaceful Reunification of China (CPPRC) and the Miami chapter of the American arm of the Chinese Association of Science and Technology. Both groups have direct links to China’s Communist Party. Analysts of Chinese foreign policy describe the CPPRC as an instrument to project Chinese influence around the world.

    But I haven't seen anything that appears to give her any inside access so until there is it's just a lot of spin. It's the same kind of spin that has been used against the Clintons.

    Nothing you'd accept.

    A pity, really... given that Donald's no stranger to carnal economics (have paid for sex in the past), a madam really would be a sensible business partner...

    But if you prefer, she's as innocent as Hillary Clinton.

    (There... that should explode a few heads... :wave: )

    A lot of the folks who were all up in arms over Pizzagate, which was an idiotic conspiracy theory about human trafficking fueled by the likes of Mike Flynn Jr, have been awfully quiet about actual human trafficking.

    We are seeing the effects of the Russian Collaboration thing having fallen flat. Something has to take its place, and we can see with this trial balloon how little there is choose from.

    Do you have knowledge of the Mueller Report that none of us have?

    Oh spare us the narrative. Someone Trump is friendly with seems to have sold access to him. That person has ties to a foreign government. This isn't a distraction. It's something worth investigating.

    And yet it is perfectly fine for a Secretary of State to receive millions of dollars from foreign governments.

    Nothing to see there
