Well, everyone in the liberal media thought it was not as big of an issue, as did the Hillary Clinton campaign. But conservatives, conservative media and the Trump campaign felt the e-mail scandal was big enough to continue to remind American voters and the public about it. Yet, the Trump campaign limited their rhetoric and let the Clinton campaign do themselves in (which they did).
Still, CNN was puzzled  that the e-mail scandal was one of the bigger stories of the presidential campaign. A study, published last week, pointed out that many Americans heard more about the e-mail scandal than any other subject or topic during the campaign cycle.
To be fair, CNN pointed out that it was Clinton’s ineptness in handling the e-mail scandal that ultimately did her presidential bid in.
