Trump Chose Washington Lawyer Cipollone as Next White House Counsel - Reports

MOSCOW (UrduPoint News / Sputnik - 14th October, 2018) US President Donald Trump has chosen Washington commercial lawyer Pat Cipollone as his next White House counsel, media reported citing sources familiar with the situation.

Cipollone has already started the process of filling out necessary paperwork to replace incumbent counsel Donald McGahn, according to the Axios news website.

"He's not an obvious choice. Not a political guy like Don was. Not tied to the Hill and doesn't know all the senators like Don does," the source was quoted as saying by Axios.

The media outlet did not rule out that Trump could reverse his decision or that other obstacle could arise in the paperwork process but said that as of today it is expected to be Cipollone.
