CNN senior legal analyst Jeffrey Toobin continued vocalizing his opposition on Monday afternoon to FBI Director James Comey’s Friday letter revealing the discovery of new e-mails in the Hillary Clinton investigation as having “violat[ed]” a “principle” of the Justice Department to not “interfere in elections” but instead “go dark.”

Speaking to CNN Newsroom host Brooke Baldwin, Toobin claimed he could “certainly understand what Comey was doing but you know, even I as a lowly assistant U.S. Attorney in the 1990s, knew there was a bedrock principle at the Justice Department” to keep investigations tampered down around elections.
