Doors open at 5:30PM, discussion of The Wolves of K Street with authors Brody Mullins and Luke Mullins begins at 6:30PM. This program will be moderated by William J. Clinton Presidential Library and Museum Director Jay Barth. Presented in partnership with the Clinton Presidential Center.


Two veteran investigative journalists trace the rise of the modern lobbying industry through the three dynasties—one Republican, two Democratic—that have enabled corporate interests to infiltrate American politics and undermine our democracy.

About the Authors:

Brody Mullins is an investigative reporter in the Washington, DC, bureau of The Wall Street Journal, where he covers business, lobbying, and campaign finance. He was part of the team that won the 2023 Pulitzer Prize for Investigative Reporting for revealing financial conflicts of interest among officials at fifty federal agencies who bought and sold stocks of companies they were tasked with regulating.

Luke Mullins is a contributing writer at POLITICO magazine, where he covers the people and institutions that control Washington’s levers of power. He has been a senior writer at Washingtonian magazine, and he’s also written for The Atlantic, Esquire, and Mother Jones, among other publications.

About The Wolves of K Street:

“If you want to understand how American democracy went off the rails, all you need to do is read this book. The Mullins brothers have captured the entire crazy saga, and they’ve come with the receipts to prove that it’s all true. A shockingly detailed look inside the secretive industry that shapes our democracy for the highest bidder, this epic feat of investigative reporting will be required reading for years to come.”
—Christopher Leonard, New York Times bestselling author of The Lords of Easy Money

“However nefarious you think the lobbying industry is in Washington, Brody and Luke Mullins have news: It’s worse. Not even during the Roaring Twenties and the Gilded Age did corporate American wield so much influence, fueling the rise of the populist right and the progressive left, of Donald Trump and Bernie Sanders. In their deeply reported, compelling new book, the Mullins brothers track how that happened, and the disastrous consequences.”
—Susan Page, New York Times bestselling author of The Matriarch

“This book begins with a mysterious dead body and ends with what deserves to be the death of the malevolent influence of Washington's K Street lobbying firms. But like cockroaches, lobbyists scurry away and multiply. A vivid, brilliantly told tale that unfolds like a novel, this is the most potent portrait of the Washington swamp you will read.”
—Ken Auletta, New York Times bestselling author of Googled
