THERE'S A REASON HONORABLE ATTORNEYS WON'T REPRESENT HIM:

Lawsuit Against Trump's National Emergency Immediately Throws His Own Words Back in His Face (Matt Naham, February 18th, 2019, Law & Crime)

It was immediately apparent that numerous lawsuits would arise in the aftermath of President Donald Trump's national emergency declaration to build a wall on the Mexican border, but it was just as obvious how these complaints would begin. Legal experts cried out that Trump had already undercut his executive action by uttering the words "I didn't need to do this." George Conway, for example, said that would be the "first sentence of the first paragraph of every complaint filed this afternoon."

Conway was a little off on the paragraph, line number, and the day, but animal and wildlife activists at the Center of Biological Diversity, Defenders of Wildlife and the Animal Legal Defense fund did not take long to mention that Trump himself said he didn't have to do this, calling into question whether this was a legitimate emergency.
