"Maybe Dems should just quit lying and do their jobs," Sanders added.

“This was a very big day for our country. This was a very big day for the Republican Party. And you could say it was a great day for me, but I don’t even like to say that. It’s great,” the president told reporters at the White House.

Mueller reiterated during his testimony before the House Judiciary Committee that he and his team did not "reach a determination as to whether the president committed a crime" but said that he could be charged with obstruction of justice after he leaves office.

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.

Mueller's team did not find evidence to establish that Trump's campaign illegally coordinated with Russia during the 2016 election, but the special counsel on Wednesday also doubled down on his assertion that his report did not "exonerate" the president.
