CNN’s legal analyst Jeffrey Toobin tried to downplay former FBI Agent Peter Strzok’s anti-Trump bias, and said his text messages with FBI lawyer Lisa Page were no big deal on “CNN Newsroom” Tuesday.
Host Poppy Harlow put several text messages between Strzok and Page on the screen that discussed the 2016 presidential election and disparaged then-candidate Donald Trump.
“So what? What does that tell you?” Toobin asked, shrugging off the controversy. “I mean, yes, the fact that this investigation was going on in the middle of a presidential campaign, everybody knew that. Obviously, they had to resolve it. This idea that FBI agents can’t acknowledge what’s going on in the real world. I read those text messages and I think, so what?”
