BONUS EPISODE: Jeffrey Toobin on Brett Kavanaugh’s #MeToo Moment
CNN’s Chief Legal Analyst Jeffrey Toobin joins Daniella and Ed to discuss the new sexual assault allegations against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh. They draw on the eerie parallels to Anita Hill’s experience back in 1991 and look at how today’s #MeToo movement might a foretell a different outcome. They also digest the plea deal Trump’s former campaign manager, Paul Manafort, made with the special counsel and discuss what it all means for the president. Finally, they look at the extraordinary life of Ruth Bader Ginsburg. Toobin reveals what he—and some liberals—see as the “black mark” on her legacy.
