CNN legal analyst Jeffrey Toobin discussed President Joe Biden’s gaffe of referring to Egyptian President Abdel Fattah El-Sisi as the “president of Mexico” during a press conference addressing his age and memory.

He highlighted this as the memorable point from the event and emphasized that Biden’s exoneration regarding the classified documents was legally sound due to the absence of criminal intent.

Jeffrey Toobin said, “Mexico? Mexico? Where did that come from? I mean, that’s the only thing anyone is going to remember from this. You know, he was exonerated here, and I think it’s an easy call that he was exonerated, and I think legally he’s never had a problem with this because the issue of criminal intent was quite clearly absent in the Biden case and, certainly according to the accusations in the Jack Smith indictment, is very much present in the Trump case.”

“I think they are very different and the report even spelled this out. But Mexico? I mean, politically, how do you explain that?” he exclaimed.

Toobin continued, “I don’t buy that at all. Classified information, people over classify so much. People take classified information all the time. I think legally this is a nonissue. The issue was Biden’s age. That didn’t seem very helpful.”

He questioned the political implications of Biden’s mistake and downplayed the significance of the classified information issue, attributing the main focus to Biden’s age.
