White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders stopped-by Hannity Thursday night to weigh-in on Attorney General Barr’s dramatic press conference; saying the Democrats’ total “meltdown” regarding Mueller’s final report is “truly astonishing.”
“I think that the White House is in a great position, and what we’ve been saying for the last two and a half years has been totally vindicated. The President has been completely exonerated; no collusion, no obstruction,” said Sanders.
“It is outrageous the way that the media, the Democrats have behaved. The meltdown that we saw today is truly astonishing, but it’s a great day for America. It’s a good thing when they can say that no American was involved in colluding with a foreign government,” she added.

COLLUSION DELUSION: Pelosi, Schumer SLAM the Attorney General’s ‘Partisan’ Mueller Report
Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer slammed Attorney General William Barr’s “partisan handling” of Robert Mueller’s final report Thursday; dismissing his findings hours before the document is released to Congressional leaders.
“Attorney General Barr’s regrettably partisan handling of the Mueller report, including his slanted March 24th summary letter, his irresponsible testimony before Congress last week, and his indefensible plan to spin the report in a press conference later this morning — hours before he allows the public or Congress to see it — have resulted in a crisis of confidence in his independence and impartiality,” said a joint statement from the Democratic leaders.
“We believe the only way to begin restoring public trust in the handling of the Special Counsel’s investigation is for Special Counsel Mueller himself to provide public testimony in the House and Senate as soon as possible,” they concluded.
