CNN's host Brianna Keilar questioned Rep. Mike Turner, the top Republican on the House Intelligence committee and continually made him look like a fool when he defended Trump over keeping top secret documents at his Mar-a-Lago residence.

During a two minute section the CNN host lambasted Rep. Turner, who attacked Hillary Clinton's private email server, calling her unfit to serve the presidency because she had a disregard for US law.


Keilar posted several of his inflammatory comments against HRC.

"You're not holding Trump to the same standard, why?" she asked.

Turner claimed there was a significant difference, but what he said made no sense at all, and then he made this ludicrous statement about the documents Trump was in possession of.

"These are 2-year-old documents that are in the president's residence. We don't know what's in them," he said.

Huh? Is there an expiration date on all top secret and highly classified information?

"They're not ongoing, certainly now, of which they waited two years and a weekend after they got their warrant to raid his home," Turned said.

Turner, with no proof tried to claim the documents in Trump's Florida basement weren't relevant today.

Keilar blasted him.

"Are you -- do you have evidence -- do you have evidence -- sir, do you have evidence that they are not ongoing?" she asked.

Turner kept talking over her. "They don't rise to the same level of ongoing communications that you had in Hillary Clinton," Turner squealed

"Excuse me, sir," Keilar interrupted. "Sir, I just want to be clear. How do you know they're not ongoing? You haven't been briefed on what you want to be briefed on. How do you know that? Why are you saying that, if you don't know it?"

"Well, according to the receipt, according -- well, we do know it," Turner opined.

Then Rep.Turner claimed that these documents, or papers are static, unlike emails that are not. I think anyway.

"Papers are static. They're not ongoing data communications and transmissions of data, which is what was going through Hillary Clinton's server," he said.

I mean, really? This is the top Republican on matters of intelligence?

Republicans will say and do anything to allow Trump to commit crime after crime with no consequences.
