The White House counsel did not fly to Texas with Trump after all

Sources told CNN Wednesday that President Trump was planning to bring White House counsel Pat Cipollone on his trip to the southern border.
But that didn’t happen after all.
White House press secretary Sarah Sanders said Cipollone did not fly to McAllen. There is no explanation yet from the White House why he did not.
Earlier Thursday Cipollone was expected to travel with the President, though Trump was not expected to declare a national emergency while there. People close to the President had cautioned this could change.
Here’s who Sanders said went with Trump instead:
Texas Sens. John Cornyn and Ted Cruz, both Republicans
Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen
White House chief of staff Mick Mulvaney
White House senior adviser Jared Kushner
White House communications director Bill Shine
White House senior policy adviser Stephen Miller
White House social media director Dan Scavino
Lt. General Todd Semonite, head of US Army Corps of Engineers
Kevin McAleenan, commissioner of US Customs and Border Protection
