White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders on Tuesday accused Democrats who are threatening to issue a subpoena for special counsel Robert Mueller’s full report of being “sore losers.”
“They will never be satisfied. They’re sore losers,” Sanders told reporters on the White House driveway. “They lost in 2016. They lost because they tried to convince all of America of something we all knew was untrue — that the president had colluded with Russia.
“It was a total lie then. It is a total lie now,” she continued. “And they continue to lose on this issue. At some point, they have to decide that they’re ready to move on like the rest of America.”
Sanders’s comments echoed those of President Trump, who has in recent days has tweeted disapprovingly of Democratic leaders who have vowed to press for Mueller’s full report and its underlying evidence.
She added that Trump has not yet been briefed on Mueller’s report.
