Somehow, the currently-amazing tale of New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft’s arrest and the lady who founded the massage parlor he allegedly patronized has gotten even stranger. Just after it was reported that Chinese entrepreneur Li “Cindy” Yang had palled about with and donate to the Trump family members, a new investigation has uncovered achievable proof of Yang promoting access to Trump to Chinese officials.
Yang sold her massage parlor in 2013, years prior to Kraft was arrested for soliciting prostitution. (He denies the charge.) In 2017, she founded a firm known as GY US Investments LLC. An exposé from Mother Jones published Saturday reports that Yang’s enterprise advertises itself as an “international business enterprise consulting firm that delivers public relations solutions to help organizations in America to establish and expand their brand image in the modern day Chinese marketplace,” and also promises “the chance to interact with the president, the [American] Minister of Commerce and other political figures.”
The firm’s web site evidently stopped functioning sometime soon after Yang spoke with the Miami Herald, but reportedly featured photographs of Yang and alleged clientele at Mar-a-Lago, Trump’s club in Palm Beach. As previously reported, Yang’s now-defunct Facebook web page also featured shots of her with Donald Trump Jr., Florida Rep. Matt Gaetz, RNC chair Ronna McDaniel, Sarah Palin, and other influential conservative figures. Yang is stated to have donated $42,000 to a Trump political action committee, as properly as upwards of $16,000 to Trump’s campaign.
The GY US Investments web site also allegedly featured a quantity of upcoming Mar-a-Lago events, presumably marketing access to different members of the Trump circle. According to Mother Jones, 1 section showed photographs of Chinese executives and a Chinese film star with Donald Trump Jr. Even stranger: though GY is stated to have offices in Miami, Washington, D.C., and Wuhan, China, the Washington address apparently matches that of a UPS retailer.
No 1 involved—Yang, her business enterprise partners listed on the web site, or press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders—has responded with any comment on the matter.
