On Thursday, former White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders emerged on Twitter to defend President Donald Trump following special counsel Robert Mueller’s testimony before Congress the previous day, saying Democrats should “quit lying and do their jobs.”
“Almost feel sorry for the Democrats: they said @realDonaldTrump would lose-he won; said he’d ruin our economy-it’s booming; and when all else failed said he’s a traitor! when in fact he’s a patriot making America great again,” she tweeted.
“Maybe Dems should just quit lying and do their jobs,” Sanders added.
President Trump himself took a victory lap on Wednesday after Mueller’s more than six-hour appearance on Capitol Hill to answer questions about his investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election and possible obstruction of justice by Trump.
The former special counsel’s report released earlier this year laid out 10 possible instances of obstruction, but Mueller has said he and his team did not consider whether to recommend charges due to current Justice Department guidance against indicting a sitting president.
However, Mueller reiterated during his testimony before the House Judiciary Committee that Trump could be charged with obstruction of justice after he leaves office.

Turns out the move to the president’s propaganda outlet is not as seamless as Sarah sandwich hoped. Keep shilling eventually fox will have to hire you.

Your credibility is so subterranean that I’m surprised you get cell service down there to Tweet.

It's rich hearing YOU tell someone ELSE to "do their job"… how about all those press briefings you didn't have for months at a time, Miss "Press Secretary"?
But I don't know what I expect from a hypocritical GOPer. You're complicit in Russian attacks on our democracy. Proud?

Yes the campaign and the administration colluded and obstructed.
Yes Donald can be indicted when he's out of office.
The Dems nailed it pretty accurately.

He actively sought help from a foreign adversary and then lied about it to cover it up while also trying to have the investigators fired. I feel sorry for you for drinking the Kool-Aid, losing your credibility forever.

Who is in the Mueller Report admitting that she lied? Oh, yes, it was YOU. The Mueller Report is damning. Trump and his crew don't care about protecting America. They welcomed Russian interference. Any way you spin it, that is BAD. That makes Trump the traitor to our democracy.

You're a fake Christian spewing hate and lies.
