CNN legal analyst Jeffrey Toobin couldn’t contain himself when CNN’s John Berman brought up Ivanka Trump’s use of her private email account for government business.
“Irony is dead!” he cried, even before Berman could get his question out.
“Most people realize that government officials do use their private e-mail occasionally,” Toobin continued. “Hillary Clinton did it, too. It is not fundamentally a big deal. The news media made it a big deal. Donald Trump made it a big deal.”
He added that he feels a measure of personal responsibility for talking about Clinton’s emails on CNN too much during the 2016 election and contributing to the blown-out-of-proportion narrative.
