Bob Dole’s law firm was paid $140,000 to lobby Trump on behalf of Taiwan


From Business Insider:

Bob Dole, a former US senator from Kansas and 1996 Republican presidential nominee, has apparently been working to get Taiwanese leaders and the Trump transition team on the same page.

In addition to an unprecedented phone call with Taiwan’s President Tsai Ing-wen last week, Dole has been working on behalf of Taiwan to establish relationships with the incoming Trump administration, according to a New York Times report published Tuesday.

Dole’s Washington law firm, Alston & Bird, was paid $140,000 between May and October this year for his efforts, The Times said.”
