Legal analyst Jeffrey Toobin sat down with CNN’s Anderson Cooper to talk about the “so-called” spy-issue.
President Donald Trump, has coined the term “spy-gate” in an attempt to call out spies in his presidential campaign.
“This so-called spy issue, first of all, there’s absolutely no evidence there was a spy. Second of all, even if they learn the identity of this person, that has very little to do with what the president is going to be asked about. So it’s really a fake issue,” Toobin said.
Toobin said that President Trump is seeking to “discredit” the investigation.
“What the president has been trying to do is to discredit the investigation, discredit the FBI, discredit Mueller. If he sends his lawyer into a sort of preview what’s going on, again that looks like advocacy. It doesn’t look like a neutral investigation of the facts, which is what the gang of eight investigations is supposed to be.”
