Just take what we know now, thanks to the great reporting of the Miami Herald and Mother Jones, both of which have broken a series of important stories about this tangled web of creeps trying to make a buck in the worst ways possible:
Cindy Yang founded a chain of massage parlors. One of those was busted by Florida police. Robert Kraft, owner of the perennial Super Bowl Champion New England Patriots was arrested for what he allegedly did at that spa, as were other prominent men according to several reports.
The spa allegedly was engaged in trafficking young women from China, turning them into sex slaves locked into horrendous lives of serial rape and squalor. While Cindy Yang sold the massage parlor in question, she continued to own others that were suspected of also doing a brisk business in sexual services.
But Yang also founded a business with her husband in 2017 called “GY US Investments” which offered itself, according to the Mother Jones account, as an “international business consulting firm that provides public relations services to assist business in America to establish and expand their brand image in the modern Chinese marketplace.”
While that sounds like typical consulting firm gobbledygook, the rest of the site makes it clear that what the company did was promise access to the President of the United States, his family and his resort Mar-a-Lago as a way of helping Chinese businesses establish themselves in the U.S. and worldwide.
Pictures have emerged of Cindy Yang with Trump at a party celebrating the victory of Kraft’s Patriots in the most recent Super Bowl. Pictures have emerged of her with many local and national GOP figures including rabid Trump defender Matt Gaetz, who happens to have been the only member of Congress to vote against a bill opposing sex trafficking.
Pictures of her clients with the Trump sons Eric and Don, Jr. adorn her own website. She has, it turns out, been a big donor to Trump and to the GOP, even appearing in one picture with Don Jr. while holding a “MAGA” clutch purse.
In other words, she is one of the denizens of the Mar-a-Lago demimonde who, like the half dozen others who have become ambassadors and those who have used their access to plead their special interests with Trump, have seen the Trump Administration as a giant cash machine available for their exploitation.
