Sarah Sanders Suffers Pathetic Public Meltdown Over Mueller Hearing

She’s back! The members of the Trump team are addicted to lies, even after they leave official service, apparently. Former White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders responded early this Wednesday to Robert Mueller testifying before Congress for the first time about his Russia investigation by asserting that the probe had totally exonerated the president. In short, it had done no such thing, and neither Mueller nor the widely circulated final report summarizing the investigation indicated as much.

She railed:

Didn’t take long for Mueller to once again vindicate President @realDonaldTrump. No collusion. No obstruction. And now Mueller all but admits it was all along a total witch hunt. What’s been clear to all but the liberal media is this was a partisan investigation run by Democrats out to destroy @realDonaldTrump with Mueller as the figurehead. Thank you House Democrats for calling today’s hearing and exposing the truth for all Americans to see.’

No, just no. Again, Mueller did not say there was no collusion or obstruction and he did not “all but admit” that the probe was a “total witch hunt” in the first place. In particular, Sanders was responding to a clip in which Texas Republican Congressman John Ratcliffe goes on a passionate, martyrdom-complex fueled rant about how Mueller supposedly stepped out of line in his role as special counsel in declaring that he could not conclude that Trump was innocent. As Mueller tried to get out through Ratcliffe’s hot-headed ranting, although there’s little to no apparent precedent for a prosecutor making such an assumption about an accused individual, this is a glaringly unique case. Because of standing Justice Department precedent against indicting a sitting president, Mueller’s team finding evidence outlining Trump’s obstruction of justice turned into them saying “well, he’s certainly not innocent” and stopping there.

Nowhere in there is there any sort of exoneration for the president. Sanders and all the rest of them are willfully ignoring the mountains of evidence clearly laid out for them, instead seizing on the point that Mueller couldn’t bring a criminal charge against Trump and running around with it like they’re high.
