CNN’s Toobin: ‘The FBI Should Do Its Job and Shut Up’

toobinCNN legal analyst Jeffrey Toobin said tonight that the FBI needs to “put up or shut up” when it comes to disclosures so close to the election.

Toobin said that it is supposed to be a “bedrock principle” that the DOJ does not comment on pending investigations without something of substance to say.

And as far as he’s concerned, Comey “violated this principle” and the last thing he should do to correct it is to balance it out by releasing “partial information” about Donald Trump.

“The FBI,” he concluded, “should do its job and shut up until they have the charges to bring.”
