House Intelligence Committee Chair Adam Schiff (D-CA) has become one of Republicans' most prominent enemies in his hesitation to deem Attorney General William Barr's summary of the Mueller Report exonerates President Donald Trump.
Donald Trump has since deemed Schiff a "pencil-neck," even selling shirts paying tribute to the moniker. He frequently decries Schiff at his rallies and on Twitter.
Republican National Committee Chairwoman—and niece to Senator Mitt Romney (R-UT)—Ronna McDaniel echoed these attacks, calling Schiff "delusional."
Adam Schiff is delusional. He says he doesn't have any regrets, even after the Special Counsel investigation exon… https://t.co/eTLhUurOjP— Ronna McDaniel (@Ronna McDaniel)1554655349.0
But attorney George Conway, a longtime Trump critic and husband to Trump advisor Kellyanne Conway, wasn't about to let McDaniel's words slide.
“While this report does not conclude that the President committed a crime, it also does not exonerate him.”… https://t.co/mDc0eGuKMd— George Conway (@George Conway)1554776460.0
Conway alluded to the words Attorney General Barr's summary, which plainly say that, on possible obstruction of justice, the President is not exonerated. This hasn't stopped Trump and his ilk from claiming that the Mueller Report is a complete and total exoneration of the President.
Twitter applauded Conway for pointing this out.

Many had thoughts on "the liar who shouldn't be taken seriously."

With the report still unreleased, Conway's words also spurred some speculation as to what it could reveal.

@gtconway3d He told people at the border to break the law.. what makes one think he didn’t do the same with Cohen, Jr, or Sessions.— dominic (@dominic)1554777814.0

@gtconway3d @PreetBharara We know 62 words from Mueller and they are enough to make it clear the GOP is lying.— Bryan (@Bryan)1554814017.0
Calls to release the report are growing louder after its release has been frequently blocked by Senate Republicans. Barr has promised to release it later this month, after redactions are made.
Hopefully the redactions won't conceal the most important parts.
