CNN’s Toobin: Court Ruling on Travel Ban is ‘Complete and Total Repudiation’ of WH’s Case

CNN’s Jeffrey Toobin reacted to the court ruling upholding the blocking of President Trump‘s travel ban by calling it a “complete and total repudiation of the Trump administration’s legal position in this case.”

He pointed out that the ruling was unanimous among three judges––one each appointed by George W. Bush, Jimmy Carter, and Barack Obama––”so there is no political division among the three judges.”

He said it’s likely going to the Supreme Court now, but for the moment “the Trump administration has lost dramatically and completely.”

But then there’s that whole 4-4 split Supreme Court issue. Toobin said if that were to happen, the stay on the order remains.
