Sarah Sanders calls Democrats 'sore losers' for seeking subpoena of Mueller report

White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders on Tuesday accused Democrats who are threatening to issue a subpoena for special counsel Robert MuellerRobert (Bob) MuellerCNN's Toobin warns McCabe is in 'perilous condition' with emboldened Trump CNN anchor rips Trump over Stone while evoking Clinton-Lynch tarmac meeting The Hill's 12:30 Report: New Hampshire fallout MORE'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 TrumpDonald John TrumpGeraldo Rivera on Trump sowing election result doubts: 'Enough is enough now' Murkowski: Trump should concede White House race Scott Atlas resigns as coronavirus adviser to Trump MORE, who has in recent days 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.

Democrats on the House Judiciary Committee are scheduled to vote Wednesday on authorizing a subpoena to compel the release of Mueller’s full report and the underlying evidence to Congress.

Barr has said he expects to be able to deliver a public version by mid-April after he removes classified information and grand jury material.

But the president has in recent days expressed frustration over Democratic efforts to secure additional documents related to the report.

It is now time to focus exclusively on properly running our great Country!" he tweeted Tuesday morning, referencing the chairmen of the House Judiciary and House Intelligence committees, respectively.

On Monday, he tweeted that no amount of information would ever "be good enough" for "the crazed Democrats."

Barr said in a four-page summary of Mueller's main findings that the special counsel's investigation did not conclude that the Trump campaign colluded with the Russian government. Barr added that Mueller had neither exonerated Trump nor concluded that the president obstructed justice. The attorney general said he and another top Justice Department official decided not to charge the president.

Democrats have asserted that Mueller's full report must be made public, and that Barr's summary alone is not sufficient to draw conclusions about any wrongdoing.

Trump, meanwhile, has used Barr's summary to declare "complete vindication." Republicans have largely echoed that message, but many in the GOP have said they'd like to see the full report made public.
