CNN chief legal analyst, Jeffrey Toobin has been put on leave by the New Yorker media organization for exposing his manhood during a Zoom conference call with colleagues in what he says was an accident.

According to the New Yorker, the company has suspended Toobin following the incident, and will continue with its investigations.

A spokesperson for CNN speaking on Tuesday October 20, said “Jeff Toobin has asked for some time off while he deals with a personal issue, which we have granted.”

Before Toobin’s suspension, he was scheduled to cover the controversial Supreme Court confirmation and post electoral legal challenges.

 
An upcoming event relating to Toobin’s recent book about Trump was also postponed on Monday.

Toobin speaking to VICE said;

“I made an embarrassingly stupid mistake, believing I was off-camera,” Toobin said

 “I apologize to my wife, family, friends and co-workers.”

“I believed I was not visible on Zoom,” he added. “I thought no one on the Zoom call could see me. I thought I had muted the Zoom video.”
