While I don't normally comment on political threads, I have to say something about your question:
Can you exonerate someone who has not been found guilty?? Exonerate them of what???
Do you not understand English? The word exonerate means to absolve from blame. It literally means finding innocent of a particular charge. Not "not guilty" which just means not meeting the legal standard for guilty. But innocent or wrongly charged.
I'd like to read the whole report but honestly the back and forth between the left and right is so silly. When the Democrats are in power, the Republicans scream about abuse of power. When the Republicans are in power, the Democrats scream about abuse. The reality is they are both right.
