Trump linked into case with Kraft, human trafficking

Recommended Posts

This will end up being another congressional investigation.  Why wasn't this woman involved in politics until Trump ran for president?  Why is she in pictures with so many GOP leaders?  Why did she donate $35,000 to the Trump campaign? Why was she invited to Trump's box seats for the Super Bowl?   None of these answers will be good for The Donald.  But as I stated earlier, what would have been the biggest scandal of the entire 8-year Obama administration is just another day at the office for Trump.

A scandal like this would've pretty much ended the Obama presidency.

And it sits where in the list of Trump issues that would have ended Obama?

Is it even Top 5?

Yang sold her massage parlor in 2013, years before Kraft was arrested for soliciting prostitution.

I agree with this. 

However while Trump critics want to focus on the sex trafficking piece, like Stealthycat alluded to above the bigger problem is access to the president.

People cared a lot. In fact Congress conditioned Hillary Clinton's confirmation as Secretary of State on the Clinton Foundation providing and posting all members and contributors (though as we know there were some glitches to that).

Are Trump supporters on board with Trump doing the same with Mar-A-Lago?

...Yang sold her massage parlor in 2013, years before Kraft was arrested for soliciting prostitution. (He denies the charge.) In 2017, she founded a firm called GY US Investments LLC. An exposé from Mother Jones published Saturday reports that Yang’s company advertises itself as an “international business consulting firm that provides public relations services to assist businesses in America to establish and expand their brand image in the modern Chinese marketplace,” and also promises “the opportunity to interact with the president, the [American] Minister of Commerce and other political figures.”

The firm’s website evidently stopped functioning sometime after Yang spoke with the Miami Herald, but reportedly featured photos of Yang and alleged clients at Mar-a-Lago, Trump’s club in Palm Beach. As previously reported, Yang’s now-defunct Facebook 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 said to have donated $42,000 to a Trump political action committee, as well as upwards of $16,000 to Trump’s campaign.

The GY US Investments website also allegedly featured a number of upcoming Mar-a-Lago events, presumably advertising access to various members of the Trump circle. According to Mother Jones, one section showed photos of Chinese executives and a Chinese movie star with Donald Trump Jr. Even stranger: while GY is said to have offices in Miami, Washington, D.C., and Wuhan, China, the Washington address apparently matches that of a UPS store.

No one involved—Yang, her business partners listed on the website, or press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders—has responded with any comment on the matter.

- I actually don't think you think it's funny that a woman of this ilk can set up a front shop and sell direct access for Chinese executives - and maybe intelligence assets - to the Trump family at his private business and home for a mere $48,000.

Imagine what someone could get for buying into Maralago for the $300,000 membership fee.

Also, she hired and trained many of the employees at this place, she and her family still own several similar "day spas", and she founded the "school" where many of the employees at these various "spas" were "trained".

So, do you really want to hang your hat on "Trump hangs out with sex trafficker who sold one of her parlors"?

Do you think there were no happy endings at this Asian massage parlor prior to 2013?

The place still has many of the same employees who worked for Yang, many of when went to her specialized training school.

But hey, as long as Yang doesn't own the place anymore, it's totally A-OK if she sells access to potential foreign spies. That's where the bar is right now.

Did you?  Glancing through the first couple paragraphs, it seems a previous owner attended the same party as Trump.  Is that really the bar for establishing a link between Trump and human trafficking.  Seems like a very sensationalized headline which is more worthy of the Enquirer than a legitimate news organization.

At this point it seems like there is a lot we don't know but why would anyone jump up to defend Trump here? His track record isn't great when it comes to sex and money, we should probably all want to learn more about this before we make a final call.

Why in the world is that fishing?  You think every candidate needs to be held accountable for the actions of everyone in a room he/she enters or that donated to their campaign?  Nice echo chamber response.

The more interesting point is why would anyone condemn Trump for this at this point.  This is just guilt by some distant/remote connection.  There is no substance to the story.

By the Enquirer, you mean David Pecker would buy the rights to the story and never publish it?

Also plenty of people bashed Hillary and gave such things as reasons they wouldn’t vote for her

And so what did you find which implicates Trump in any wrong doing?   Having someone contribute to your campaign does not link them to criminal activity.

That is easy to explain. It is because Trump has  been proven to be involved in scandals involving money and/or sex in the past.

The headline is pretty condemning.  Suggesting this would end the Obama presidency is pretty condemning in addition to being absolutely absurd.  Obama had plenty of shady associates who donated and supported him.

Then they should stick to using the 'proven' cases than to use this one which seems a very huge stretch and diminishes the credibility of other claims.

I'm just asking you if you're in favor of calling for Trump to reveal the names of Maralago members and contributors who go through there. Are you?

A Florida Massage Parlor Owner Has Been Selling Chinese Execs Access to Trump at Mar-a-Lago

 

What exactly is inaccurate about that headline? She owned massage parlors as recently as 2013. Her family continues to own them. She had a website selling access to the President?

People shouldn't discuss anything unless it is totally proven first? How does something get proven without talking about it?

Also, is it a lie that this woman is selling access to Trump to Chinese business people/

Sure, maybe we should talk about Trump's cabinet member Sec. of Labor Alex Acosta, who gave Jeffrey Epstein a sweetheart deal, or Trump's lawyer, Allen Dershowitz, who also represented Epstein.

Righty Response: is Trump responsible for where people stand on 5th Avenue?  Why are people tying the bullet which left his gun to the one which entered her chest?  Crazy librurals will do anything to go after Trump!

A link suggests a direct connection and even implies perhaps even an ownership or a customer relationship.  The headline is misleading.

while that's very true, you have to realize that the ones defending Trump year have still never admitted he's had any issues with sex or money.  He's our awesome Bible signing president.
