The senior legal analyst for CNN, Jeffrey Toobin, announced his decision to leave the network after 20 years on Twitter on Friday. He further stated that following his trip, he will leave CNN.

Toobin, who last appeared on August 4, said he enjoyed spending his final day with his friends Don Lemon, Wolf Blitzer, and Anderson Cooper. He also expressed his affection for all of his former coworkers.

A spokesperson for CNN issued a statement about Toobin’s departure and said:

“We are grateful for Jeffrey’s contributions to the network over the years and wish him all the best in his future endeavors.”

American author, blogger, and lawyer Jeffrey Toobin is best recognised for his work as a former legal expert for CNN. He has an about $10 million net worth, according to Celebrity Net Worth.

His roughly three-decade-long profession as a writer and analyst is where he made the majority of his wealth. After enrolling at Harvard College for his undergraduate studies, Toobin started writing for The Harvard Crimson’s sports department.

He received the Harry S. Truman Scholarship in addition to his Bachelor of Arts in American history and literature, which he received with magna cum laude. Additionally, Toobin enrolled in Harvard Law School, where he earned his J.D. in 1986 with honours.

While still in college, Toobin started working as a freelancer for The New Republic and rose to the position of editor of the Harvard Law Review. The analyst began working as a law clerk for a federal judge after receiving his degree. After that, he joined Independent Counsel Lawrence Walsh’s legal team as an associate attorney for the Iran-Contra investigation and Oliver North’s criminal trial.

After that, Jeffrey Toobin worked as an assistant US attorney in Brooklyn’s Eastern District of New York. He began working as a legal analyst in 1993, shortly after joining The New Yorker. In 1996, he also started working as an ABC TV analyst.

What did Toobin do in 2020?

Toobin’s departure occurs after he gained fame after disclosing himself to his coworkers at The New Yorker in a zoom video chat in October 2020. After a three-week investigation, he was eventually let go from his position at the magazine.

The magazine’s parent company, Condé Nast, severed ties with Toobin, but CNN welcomed him back to the air after an eight-month absence. In an interview with Alisyn Camerota, the legal expert admitted to the incident and described himself as a “flawed human being who makes mistakes.”

Jeffrey Toobin also dubbed his actions “deeply moronic and indefensible” and apologized to his former colleagues at The New Yorker. He added:

“I’m sorry to the people who were on the Zoom call. They were shocked and appalled. I think they realized that this was not intended for them. I think they realized that this was something that I would immediately regret, as I certainly did.”

However, Toobin maintained that he thought he turned off his video call and did not realize other people could see him at the time:

“I wouldn’t say in my defense because nothing is in my defense but I didn’t think that I was on the call. I didn’t think other people could see me. I thought I had turned off the Zoom call.”

The analyst also said that he spent his time off volunteering and in therapy and added:

“I am trying to become that person that people can trust again.”

Toobin even apologized to his wife, family, and former colleagues at The New Yorker, as well as his colleagues at CNN:

“Above all, I am sorry to my wife and to my family but I am also sorry to the people on the Zoom call, I’m sorry to my former colleagues at the New Yorker, I’m sorry to my current, fortunately, still colleagues at CNN and I’m sorry to the people who read my work and who watched me on CNN and thought I was a better person than this.”

Prior to being fired from his position in 2020, Jeffrey Toobin had worked as a staff writer for The New Yorker since 1993. In addition, he began contributing to CNN in 2002, and up until his recent resignation, he was a significant member of the network.
