Sex Spa Founder Denies Selling Access To Trump: Dems Are Targeting Me Because I’m Republican And Chinese

NBC News reports:

The former operator of a Florida spa named in a prostitution investigation is speaking out for the first time to rebut reports that she sold access to President Donald Trump. In an interview with NBC News, Li “Cindy” Yang said she believes she’s facing allegations of being a Chinese agent solely because of her ethnicity and political leanings. “I’m Chinese. I’m Republican,” Yang said. “That’s the reason the Democrats want to check me.”

Yang spoke out two days after top Democrats released a letter calling on the FBI to launch counterintelligence and criminal investigations into the Florida-based businesswoman whose ties to Trump emerged earlier this month. The Democrats requested the FBI investigation after her company, GY Investments, was described in media reports as offering wealthy Chinese clients the opportunity to get close to the president for a price.
