White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders went after Democrats wanting to subpoena special counsel Robert Mueller’s full report on Tuesday, slamming them as “sore losers” who will “never be satisfied” with Mueller’s report on alleged collusion between President Donald Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign and the Russians.
While speaking with the press in the driveway of the White House, Sanders torched Democrats for selling the “total lie” of collusion between the president’s campaign and the Russian government:
“They will never be satisfied. They’re sore losers. They lost in 2016. They lost because they tried to convince all of America of something that we all knew was untrue: that the president had colluded with Russia.”

“It was a total lie then,” she added. “It’s a total lie now.”
The president’s press secretary went on to say that Democrats “continue to lose on this issue” and called for them “to decide that they’re ready to move on” with the rest of the country. She also stated that the president “has not been briefed” on Mueller’s report yet.
The House Judiciary Committee has teed up a vote on Wednesday to subpoena the release of the full Mueller report and its evidence to Congress.
Trump tweeted Tuesday that there was “no amount of testimony or document production” that would satisfy House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler (D-N.Y.) or House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff (D-Calif.).
He also called for a “focus” on “properly running our great country.”
There is no amount of testimony or document production that can satisfy Jerry Nadler or Shifty Adam Schiff. It is now time to focus exclusively on properly running our great Country!

Ranking member of the House Oversight Committee Jim Jordan (R-Ohio) also lambasted Democrats on Tuesday while appearing on “Fox & Friends,” saying they were “not focused” on helping the country and instead wanted to “find something” on Trump, as IJR Red previously reported.
