While attending Harvard Law School, he began writing for a liberal publication called The New Republic.
Toobin was born to a Jewish family in New York City in 1960, the son of Marlene Sanders, former ABC News and CBS News correspondent, and Jerome Toobin, a news broadcasting producer.
Toobin attended Columbia Grammar & Preparatory School, and then Harvard College for undergraduate studies. He covered sports for The Harvard Crimson, where his column was titled "Inner Toobin". Toobin graduated magna cum laude with a Bachelor of Arts degree in American History and Literature, and was awarded a Harry S. Truman Scholarship. He then attended Harvard Law School, where he was classmates with Elena Kagan and graduated magna cum laude with a J.D. in 1986. While there, he was an editor of the Harvard Law Review.
In 1986, Toobin married Amy Bennett McIntosh, whom he met in college while they worked at The Harvard Crimson. She is a 1980 Harvard graduate, holds an MBA degree from Harvard Business School, and has held executive positions at Verizon Communications and Zagat Survey. They have two adult children, a daughter and son.
After three years as an Assistant U.S. Attorney, Toobin resigned from the U.S. Attorney's office in Brooklyn, where he had gone to work after working for Walsh, and abandoned "the practice of law." He started working in 1993 at The New Yorker and became a television legal analyst for ABC in 1996.
Toobin has provided broadcast legal analysis on many high-profile cases. In 1994, Toobin broke the story in The New Yorker that the legal team in O. J. Simpson's criminal trial planned to accuse Mark Fuhrman of planting evidence. Toobin provided analysis of Michael Jackson's 2005 child molestation trial, the O. J. Simpson civil case, and prosecutor Kenneth Starr's investigation of President Bill Clinton. He received a 2000 Emmy Award for his coverage of the Elián González custody saga.
Toobin joined CNN in 2002; he is now the chief legal analyst. In 2003, he secured the first interview with Martha Stewart about the insider trading charges against her.
Toobin had a longtime off-and-on extramarital affair with attorney Casey Greenfield, who is the daughter of American television journalist and author Jeff Greenfield and the ex-wife of screenwriter Matt Manfredi. They had a child in 2009, which Toobin initially resisted acknowledging. Ultimately, Toobin's paternity was confirmed with a DNA test and a Manhattan Family Court judge ordered Toobin to pay child support.
His next book, The Oath: The Obama White House and the Supreme Court, was published in 2012. American Heiress: The Kidnapping, Crimes and Trial of Patty Hearst came out in 2016. All were New York Times Best Sellers. In 2020, he authored True Crimes and Misdemeanors, the Investigation of Donald Trump, which is described as a condensation of evidence against the character and presidency of Donald Trump as if he were on trial.
In the 2016 television series The People v. O. J. Simpson: American Crime Story, Toobin was portrayed by Chris Conner.
On October 19, 2020, Toobin was suspended from The New Yorker after he exposed himself and masturbated during an election scenario exercise conducted via Zoom video call between New Yorker and WNYC radio staffers. CNN said Toobin "has asked for some time off while he deals with a personal issue, which we have granted." Toobin, who contends the incident was unintentional, issued a statement: "I made an embarrassingly stupid mistake, believing I was off-camera. I apologize to my wife, family, friends and co-workers." The next month, he was fired from The New Yorker, after an internal investigation by the parent organization, Condé Nast.
Jeffrey's marriage to Harvard Business School graduate Amy Bennett McIntosh resulted in two children. Jeffrey fathered a third child through an affair with Casey Greenfield.
Currently, Jeffrey Toobin is 62 years, 0 months and 5 days old. Jeffrey Toobin will celebrate 63rd birthday on a Sunday 21st of May 2023. Below we countdown to Jeffrey Toobin upcoming birthday.
