NEW YORK (AP) — Author-commentator Jeffrey Toobin has been suspended by the New Yorker and is stepping away from his job as CNN's senior legal analyst pending what the cable network is calling a "personal matter."
Vice reported earlier Monday that Toobin had exposed himself during a Zoom meeting.
According to Vice, members of the New Yorker and radio station WNYC were on the Zoom call when the incident occurred last week.
In a statement Monday afternoon, the New Yorker said Toobin had been "suspended while we investigate the matter" and declined further comment.
A CNN spokesperson says in a statement that "Jeff Toobin has asked for some time off while he deals with a personal issue, which we have granted."
