Jeffrey Toobin: It’s ‘Bizarre and Perhaps Sinister’ That Trump Takes Advice From Putin

CNN analyst and attorney Jeffrey Toobin commented on President Donald Trump‘s relationship with Russian leader Vladimir Putin, calling it “bizarre and perhaps sinister” that he trusts Putin over United States intelligence.

“Isn’t this yet another example of the President’s weird deference to Vladimir Putin?” he said, referring to former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe‘s claim that Trump took North Korea advice from Putin. “This is not just any leader. This is Vladimir Putin who he was trying to do business with, who was helping him win the election.”

Toobin described Trump’s relationship with a foreign influencer such as Putin as not just a periodic occurrence but a “theme” since the 2016 elections; one that made it necessary for Special Council Robert Mueller to investigate his actions all along.
