Jonathan Turley, Fox News legal analyst who routinely sides with Trump, explained why Jack Smith is an excellent appointment for the special counsel investigating Trump, his role in events leading up to the Jan. 6 attack on the Capitol, and his handling of sensitive government documents.

America's Newsroom came back to Turley after AG Garland finished his press conference where he announced the special counsel.

"Smith is a solid appointment; I don't think you're going to find many critics," Turley said. "He has an extensive legal background, a great deal of experience across the board from public integrity to international cases."

Of course, Trump and his cult will attempt to smear Smith with all they hold dear.

Turley came back around to the real trouble Trump has caused himself; namely, those documents he squirreled away at Mar-A-Lago.

Turley explained that possessing and removing usually don't result in a lengthy sentence.

"That is not the case with obstruction. When we are talking about obstruction, that is something that can come; it has historically come with significant penalties," he said.

"I think the scope of this investigation is going to be a serious concern obviously [For Trump] ---I think most of us are really looking at still Mar-A-Lago where those torpedoes in the water are probably..."

Turley called the documents "torpedoes in the water" for Trump. That is no joke coming from him.

Turley seems to be very, very nervous about where that investigation will lead.
