Remember Cindy Yang? She is the owner of the spa in Florida that was raided by the FBI for human trafficking and prostitution earlier this year.

Cindy Yang is a personal friend to the Trump family and was a major donor to 45's campaign in 2016 and active in Donald Trump's 2020 reelection fundraising.

Well, the FBI has now opened a formal investigation into Yang, for (illegally) funneling foreign-money from China into Trump's reelection campaign.

The FBI has opened a public corruption investigation into Republican donor and South Florida massage-parlor entrepreneur Li “Cindy” Yang, focusing on whether she illegally funneled money from China into the president’s re-election effort or committed other potential campaign-finance violations, the Miami Herald has learned.

Investigators obtained a federal grand jury subpoena Tuesday seeking records from Bing Bing Peranio, an employee of Yang’s family’s spa business who last year contributed a maximum $5,400 to President Donald Trump’s re-election effort, according to a source familiar with the probe. Yang came to Peranio’s workplace and helped her write the check, Peranio told reporters from The New York Times, who first reported the contribution. Peranio told The Times she didn’t “say no.”

Cindy Yang, a naturalized American citizen, ran a business that promised Chinese executives access to Trump and his family, particularly at the president’s Mar-a-Lago club in Palm Beach. In 2018, Yang became a promoter of events at Mar-a-Lago, selling tickets on Chinese social media posts targeting overseas Chinese business people with an interest in meeting the U.S. president. Yang and her guests have attended various Trump campaign events.

This is pretty cool, it's an interactive network graph that documents which Chinese billionaires attended which Trump/Pence fundraising events between 2016 and 2018, all setup through Cindy Yang.

So when do we get to see the graphs for Chinese money donated to Democrats?

So that is your comment?

Put into other words, are you saying that this is OK with you?

Does this approval carry whether or not your "false equiv" stuff applies....that is, are you on principle against the Idea of China buying the US Elections?

Doesn't sound like she speaks and writes decent English. Republicans would be uncomfortable being around her, but perhaps $$$ changes their views?
