Q: What does "legal chops" (3rd paragraph) mean?

“I would think that the type of lawyer most able to handle the impeachment scenario would be someone from the appellate and Supreme Court bar — someone of the Ted Olson or Paul Clement or Andy Pincus level, someone who knows how to make the kind of arguments should it come to a vote in the Senate,” Corallo said.

Emmet Flood, a White House lawyer and McGahn ally who handles the special counsel’s Russia investigation, has long been considered a top prospect to replace McGahn. People close to Flood said that if Trump offers him the counsel’s job, he would have to evaluate how best he could continue his priority of serving as the White House’s chief strategist with the Mueller probe.

Flood, often described as a lawyer’s lawyer, is in many ways the opposite of Trump and Giuliani, yet the president has told advisers he is impressed by Flood’s legal chops and hard-line positions defending the prerogatives of the White House.
A: In this case it means ability. This comes from an old hair do that used to be popular with Elvis. They would grow their side burns down towards their beard and called them pork chops because of the shape.

So Trump says "Legal" chops. This also means nice cut, as in pork chops or hair cut. It shows your ability to groom. This is another way of saying impressive.
