White House counselor Kellyanne ConwayKellyanne Elizabeth ConwaySchiff rips Conway's 'display of alternative facts' on Russian election interference Kellyanne Conway: Mueller didn't need to use the word 'exoneration' in report Giuliani: 'It would not have been obstruction' if Trump had fired Mueller MORE joked Thursday that the indictment of a former member of the Obama White House was an example of a member of the executive branch "finally" being held accountable.

Conway joked Thursday afternoon about the charges against Gregory Craig, former White House counsel under the Obama administration, on Twitter, writing: "BREAKING NEWS!
FINALLY! WHITE HOUSE OFFICIAL INDICTED in connection with MUELLER investigation!"

Her joke, however, ignored the guilty plea of former national security adviser Michael Flynn for a single charge of lying to investigators, after which Flynn began cooperating with Robert MuellerRobert Swan MuellerSasse: US should applaud choice of Mueller to lead Russia probe MORE's investigation into Russian election interference and the Trump campaign.

The White House and its allies have celebrated the results of that investigation, which concluded last month, after a summary of Mueller's findings from Attorney General William BarrWilliam Pelham BarrThorny part of obstruction of justice is proving intent, that's a job for Congress Mueller report unveils American democracy under Russian attack Kellyanne Conway: Mueller didn't need to use the word 'exoneration' in report MORE stated that Mueller's team had not established sufficient evidence of collusion between the Trump campaign and Russian operatives during the election.

The attorney general also wrote in his summary that he had decided against prosecuting Trump for obstruction of justice, a finding on which Mueller's report did not take a position.

Flynn was an administration official for just 24 days before resigning after news reports indicated that he had misled Vice President Pence about his contacts with Russia's ambassador, Sergey Kislyak.

He has not yet been sentenced for the charge of lying to investigators, though Mueller's team has recommended that he not serve jail time. He most recently applied for an extension in his sentencing last month.
