Jeffrey Toobin is a staff writer at The New Yorker and the senior legal analyst at CNN.  Well known for his ability to illuminate the complexities of our judicial system, Toobin has covered some of the country’s most sensational news stories and high-profile cases such as the Starr investigation of President Clinton, Martha Stewart’s legal battles, the O.J. Simpson trial, and many Supreme Court cases.  He is the author of Too Close to Call, A Vast Conspiracy, and The Nine: Inside the Secret World of the Supreme Court which lays bare the inner workings and conflicts of the Court in meticulous and entertaining detail. His newest book, The Oath: The Obama White House vs. the Supreme Court, is a gripping insider’s account of the ideological war between the John Roberts Supreme Court and the Obama Administration, beginning with the moment Roberts blundered through the Oath of Office at Obama’s inauguration.
