"I cannot, but this is a unique situation," Mueller responded.

Sanders claimed that Mueller in his testimony "all but admits it was all along a total witch hunt."

"Didn’t take long for Mueller to once again vindicate President @realDonaldTrump. No collusion. No obstruction," she tweeted. 

Sanders added in a follow-up tweet that Mueller was a "figurehead" of an investigation "run by Democrats out to destroy" Trump.

"Thank you House Democrats for calling today’s hearing and exposing the truth for all Americans to see," she concluded.

Sanders departed as press secretary late last month. During her nearly two years on the job, she was a fierce critic of Mueller and defender of the president's claim that the investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election was a "witch hunt."

Mueller's report stated that Sanders admitted to investigators that she lied to reporters when she claimed she'd heard from "countless" FBI officials who were happy with the president's decision to fire former Director James ComeyJames Brien ComeyMystery surrounds Justice's pledge on journalist records NYT publisher: DOJ phone records seizure a 'dangerous incursion' on press freedom Trump DOJ seized phone records of New York Times reporters MORE.

The 448-page report did not establish a conspiracy between the Trump campaign and the Russian government, and neither exonerated nor implicated the president on obstruction of justice charges.
