Huckabee Sanders desperately and repeatedly lies about the Mueller report on TODAY Show

Huckabee Sanders

White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders has not read the Mueller report and she apparently has not read Attorney General William Barr’s summary either since she repeatedly lied about President Donald Trump being “totally exonerated” on Monday.

Barr’s summary clearly states that the report “does not exonerate” Trump, but Huckabee Sanders desperately insisted that it does during an interview on the TODAY Show.

Today Show host Savannah Guthrie pointed out that the report doesn’t exonerate Trump and even read Barr’s summary to her before asking her to concede the point.

“Would you acknowledge it is incorrect for the president to call this a total exoneration?”

Trump proclaimed “total and complete exoneration” on Twitter Sunday even though that’s not what the report says. And Huckabee Sanders repeated Trump’s lie in response.

“It is a complete and total exoneration,” Huckabee Sanders said. “Because the Special Counsel said they couldn’t make a decision one way or the other, the way the process works is that they leave that up to the Attorney General.”

Guthrie reminded viewers and Huckabee Sanders that Barr is biased against the Mueller report and has been from the start long before he was ever appointed by Trump.

Indeed, Barr had already argued that it’s impossible for a president to obstruct justice in June 2018 and wrote a 19-page memo to the Justice Department in opposition of the Russia probe.

In no way is Barr a non-partisan actor here. Instead, he’s a Trump crony through and through who should not have been able to determine whether Trump obstructed justice or not.

But Huckabee Sanders continued to insist that the Mueller report completely exonerated Trump even though she is not a lawyer and has zero legal experience.

“In the legal community, when you can’t convict somebody on something, you’re legally exonerating them,” she said.

Here’s the video via Twitter.

Twitter users were not amused by her lies.

The bottom line is it’s time to release the full report and then we’ll know exactly how full of sh*t Huckabee Sanders is.
