“Lobbyists, Corporate Clients Open Wallets for Trump”

Roll Call:

K Street has entered the Trump era.

Lobbyists and organizations that seek to influence Washington mostly neglected the presidential campaign of Donald Trump early last year, but by the end of 2016, the sector had begun to embrace him, new lobbying disclosures show.

K Streeters disclosed $5.3 million in donations to Trump — much of that going to the Jan. 20 inauguration — from July through December of last year. That was a huge increase from the 14 donations totaling about $35,000 that lobbyists and their business clients reported during the first six months of last year.-
