During an interview on MSNBC's The Katie Phang Show on Saturday, Phang quizzed former US Attorney Barbara McQuade about a recent Washington Post report highlighting that Trump's lawyers are divided on handling the case.
"I say, Katie, to the attorneys who have joined in good faith and believe they will change Donald Trump: thank God, good luck - here we are again," McQuade said. "Donald Trump has a mode, it's offensive to everything all the time."
In August, the FBI searched Trump's Florida home and found classified documents, including some marked Top Secret, leading the DOJ to launch an investigation. On Friday, the agency asked the court to expedite an appeal to appoint a special foreman to review documents seized at Trump's home to continue its investigation.
Trump's attorney Christopher Kise, who received $3 million to represent the former president, wants Trump to adopt a new, less aggressive stance toward the DOJ, the Washington Post reported, citing sources familiar with the matter. However, according to the report, other lawyers on the legal team are critical of Kise's strategy and are open to a more combative approach.

McQuade suggested that Kise's method might be fruitless.
"And anyone who thinks they're going to change him is like the woman who marries the man and says, 'I'm going to change him.' no People are who they are," McQuade told MSNBC. "At this point in life, I'm ashamed that he doesn't know who Donald Trump is."
