According to the New York Times, when Toobin's mistress informed him she was pregnant in 2008, he-like fellow Democrat Hunter Biden-"questioned the paternity, balked at submitting to a test, and vowed to take no responsibility for a baby he wasn't sure was his".

In a statement, the 60-year-old lawyer said, "I made an embarrassingly stupid mistake, believing I was off-camera". He issued an apology to his "wife, family, friends, and co-workers". Toobin claims he thought he was not visible to others on the call, and thought he was on mute as well. Toobin is also the chief legal analyst at CNN, where he appeared on air as recently as Saturday with host Wolf Blitzer. "I thought I had muted the Zoom video".

"Jeffrey Toobin has been suspended while we investigate the matter", a spokesperson for the New Yorker confirmed to Fox News. Motherboard reported that Toobin's Conde Nast email address has also been disabled, and he has not tweeted since October 13.

Toobin wrote a novel about the O.J. Simpson trial in 1997, titled "The Run of His Life: The People v. O.J. Simpson".
