Supporters of President Donald Trump celebrated on Sunday when Attorney General William Barr sent his summary of the Mueller report to Congress.

Barr said in a letter that Special Counsel Robert Mueller found no evidence of direct collusion between the Trump campaign and Russian operatives in an effort to influence the 2016 election. On whether or not the President attempted to obstruct justice with the firing of former FBI Director James Comey and other officials, the Special Counsel’s findings were inconclusive.

The full report has yet to be seen by anyone, and lawmakers on both sides of the aisle are calling for it to be released to the public, but despite the contents not being known, Republicans across the country are presenting Barr’s letter as a “total exoneration” of Mr. Trump.

Among them are his daughter, Ivanka.

Ms. Trump invoked an Abraham Lincoln quote about slander to tout the findings presented in Barr’s summary.

It quickly backfired.

Not to mention, defending Trump against so-called slander is rather rich.
