There were no scandals in former President Barack Obama’s administration, CNN’s chief legal analysts agreed Monday night.
“You know, people in Barack Obama’s White didn’t have to hire lawyers because there were no scandals,” Jeffery Toobin said.
When his fellow “Situation Room” panelists laughed, Toobin doubled down, referencing former president George W. Bush’s administration.
“It’s true,” he said. “George W. Bush, there were no scandals to speak of in the White House.”
Toobin’s comment came during a discussion about Rep. Jerry Nadler’s (D., N.Y.) decision to ask 81 people and organizations to turn over information for the House Oversight Committee’s investigation into President Donald Trump’s business dealings.
Fellow panelist and CNN chief political analyst Gloria Borger nodded her head after Toobin’s comments.
“That’s the way it is now,” she said. “That’s the way it is now.”
“I mean, yeah, it’s like not all presidents are are the same,” Toobin said. “I mean, this is a president who is under investigation for good reason.”
