George Conway Just Perfectly Trolled Sarah Sanders for Claiming the Mueller Report Was 'a Total and Complete Exoneration' of Donald Trump

Attorney General William Barr released his summary of Special Counsel Robert Mueller's report on Sunday and the White House immediately tried to spin it as a total win for President Donald Trump.

In a letter to Congress, Barr wrote that Mueller “did not establish that members of the Trump Campaign conspired or coordinated with the Russian government in its election interference activities" and “ultimately determined not to make a traditional prosecutorial judgment” on whether the president obstructed justice.


"The Special Counsel, therefore, did not draw a conclusion - one way or the other – as to whether the examined conduct constituted obstruction."

Barr noted, however, that although the report “does not conclude that the President committed a crime, it also does not exonerate him."

Despite all that, White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders declared total victory for Trump:

"The Special Counsel did not find any collusion and did not find any obstruction. AG Barr and DAG Rosenstein further determined there was no obstruction. The findings of the Department of Justice are a total and complete exoneration of the President of the United States.”

George Conway, a conservative lawyer, outspoken Trump critic, and husband to one of Trump's closest advisors, was not about to let Sanders get away with such a blatant distortion of the Attorney General's words

"You misspelled 'While this report does not conclude that the President committed a crime, it also does not exonerate him.' Pls fix. Thx."

Sanders' Twitter feed was inundated with similar comments from people wondering why she would lie about something so obvious. She knows we can read, right?

Trump also decided on Sunday to twist Barr's words.

"No Collusion, No Obstruction, Complete and Total EXONERATION. KEEP AMERICA GREAT!" the president tweeted shortly after Barr's letter was made public.

But he did not get away with it.

Barr quite literally said that Trump was not exonerated.

We deserve to see Mueller's report. Trump said so himself last week. “Let it come out, let people see it,” Trump told reporters last Wednesday.

Democrats in the House of Representatives have vowed to get the full story to the American people. It is likely that Barr and Mueller will receive subpoenas to testify before Congress.

Consider too that the Mueller probe's conclusion is far from the end of Trump's legal woes. There are still 19 ongoing federal and state investigations into Trump, his businesses, his family, and his associates.

The sentence came after months of drama surrounding the case, including Stone's veiled threats to Judge Amy Berman Jackson on social media, and the Justice Department's decision to override the sentence recommendations of its own prosecutors after Trump criticized them.
