This R&D provides resources on the turmoil that is roiling South Korean politics. President Park Geun-hye is under fire for allowing a close confidante to look at sensitive government materials and then allowing that confidante to funnel millions of dollars to a foundation. Some of Park’s other aides also face criminal charges. South Korea gives its president immunity, but there are growing calls for Park to step down and the United States worries that the political crisis could endanger the security of the Korean Peninsula.
