Following Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s first public statement on the Trump-Russia investigation Wednesday, White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders encouraged Americans to follow Mueller’s lead by “moving on.”

As reported, Mueller publicly read a statement announcing his resignation and declaring that he had nothing more to say on the subject, after which Sanders took to Twitter to post a statement urging Americans to put the matter behind them:

“The Special Counsel has completed the investigation, closed his office, and has closed the case. Mr. Mueller explicitly said that he has nothing to add beyond the report, and therefore, does not plan to testify before Congress. The report was clear – there was no collusion, no conspiracy – and the Department of Justice confirmed there was no obstruction. Special Counsel Mueller also stated that Attorney General Barr acted in good faith in his handling of the report.

“After two years, the Special Counsel is moving on with his life, and everyone else should do the same.”
