Fox News legal analyst Andrew Napolitano on Thursday denounced Attorney General William Barr’s summary of special counsel Robert Mueller’s report as a “deceptive” and “foolish attempt to sanitize” the conclusions from Mueller’s investigation.

“It is clear that Barr’s four-page letter, about which Mueller complained to Barr and some of Mueller’s team complained to the media, was a foolish attempt to sanitize the Mueller report,” Napolitano wrote in an op-ed published on

“It was misleading, disingenuous and deceptive. Also, because Barr knew that all or nearly all of the Mueller report would soon enter the public domain, it was dumb and insulting.”
