Toobin, legal analyst for the network, said that his behavior was “deeply moronic and indefensible,” and that “I didn’t think I was on the call. I didn’t think other people could see me.”
CNN anchor Alisyn Camerota asked Toobin on air, “What the hell were you thinking?”
Toobin was fired from The New Yorker after the incident, and it was announced that he would take time off from the network.
“I am trying to become the kind of person that people can trust again,” he said.
More to come.
