Chris Wallace Skeptical of Trump’s New Legal Team: Do They ‘Each Have Their Own Axe to Grind and Their Own Ego to Fill?’

‘I would think Pat Cipollone, who is a very good lawyer himself, might want a team that would fall more into line than it looks like some of these will’

EXCERPT:

WALLACE: "The chief counsel for the President, Pat Cipollone, is going to be leading the team. If I were he, I would not be particularly pleased with the team that the President has assembled. A lot of them, people who appear on television as defenders of the President. When you’ve got Alan Dershowitz already issuing a press release about what role he’s going to play, you wonder, is this a team that is going to be cohesive and take orders from the lead guy? Or are these a bunch of people who each have their own axe to grind and their own ego to fill? I would think that Pat Cipollone, who is a very good lawyer himself, might want a team that would fall more into line, and it looks like some of these will."
