JOIN TPM FOR JUST $1

Washington litigator Pat Cipollone has begun filling out the paperwork to replace White House counsel Don McGahn when he leaves the White House in the fall, Axios and The Washington Post reported Saturday.

Trump reportedly informed Cipollone of his decision last week, but no formal announcement has been made. According to the Post, Cipollone will begin within the next week.

Trump was expected to hire Emmet Flood to replace McGahn, but Trump decided to keep Flood in his current role– helping to handle the special counsel investigation.
