Word: Why Cindy Yang matters

David Rothkopf, Daily Beast - If the President of the United States is letting a Chinese madam sell access at Mar-a-Lago to Chinese business people while his friends are getting serviced at businesses she started, he is making himself and the country vulnerable to massive blackmail risk. It is a textbook story of how foreign actors gain leverage over senior officials. 

...  Set aside the gut-wrenchingly horrific details of the sex trafficking that is at the heart of this story for a moment, and you might even see a choice irony in a madam who moved on from selling hand jobs to selling grip-and-grins with a president who himself has made pimping out his high office a signature part of his job.

[Cindy Yang] 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.
