“The variety of candidates is a positive here, and many of the lesser known can serve as a cudgel to move the more established candidates further to the right. In this scenario, we don’t want to marginalize the more extreme candidates, but make them more ‘Pied Piper’ candidates who actually represent the mainstream of the Republican Party,” read the memo.
“Pied Piper candidates include, but aren’t limited to:
• Ted Cruz
• Donald Trump
• Ben Carson
We need to be elevating the Pied Piper candidates so that they are leaders of the pack and tell the press to [take] them seriously."

Well, there's two aspects to be evaluated to come to some kind of understanding I believe:
On one hand, you have a client who almost all lawyers refuse to represent, who is well known for not following legal advice, as well as not paying his lawyers. One would imagine that this implies Trump is not attracting the best and brightest lawyers as council.
On the other hand, Trump has done a remarkably large amount of nonsensical and seemingly unintelligent things at the (assumed) behest of his lawyers. Its not unreasonable to suggest that they just once more goofed hilariously by earlier suggesting the very thing that's happening now.
