CNN’s Anderson Cooper called out Jared Kushner Tuesday for attempting to “gaslight” Americans with a wildly inaccurate summary of special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation.

Kushner, President Donald Trump’s son-in-law of and adviser, claimed the investigation “has had a much harsher impact on our democracy than a couple Facebook ads.”

Cooper slammed Kushner for trying to summarize the extensive Russian meddling in the 2016 election that was detailed in the redacted 448-page report as “a couple of Facebook ads.”

“Who else other than maybe that Cliff guy could sum up such a long, dense document so concisely?” Cooper taunted before offering a “KushnersNotes” version of the report:

On Trump's adviser and son-in-law – Jared Kushner – labeling the Mueller report "a big distraction," and suggesting that the extent of Russian interference in the election was just the buying of "some Facebook ads," @AndersonCooper is #KeepingThemHonest.
