White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders argued that it was a great day for America when the Mueller report was sent to Attorney General William Barr on a Monday edition of “New Day” on CNN.

“To be clear, I think it’s a day America has looked forward to for a long time,” Sanders said. “It’s a great day for America when a decision like this comes forward and, frankly, it’s a great thing that we can move back, that the media and everyone can move back to focusing on things like the economy, the defeat of ISIS and rising wages in this country. The things that the president’s been focused on the last two years.”(RELATED: Justice Department Delivers Mueller Conclusions To Congress-No Collusion)

President Donald Trump also appeared pleased with the results of the Mueller report, tweeting Sunday “No Collusion, No Obstruction, Complete and Total EXONERATION. KEEP AMERICA GREAT!”

Special Counsel Robert Mueller reportedly found no evidence of collusion with Russia either from Trump or from his family.

“The investigation did not establish that members of the Trump campaign conspired or coordinated with the Russian government in its election interference activities,” Mueller wrote, according to Barr’s letter.

Members of the media had to deal with the fact that the Mueller narrative was no longer true after the report.

“After two years, multiple investigations, millions of taxpayer dollars, nonstop media coverage and lies about … What do we have? NO COLLUSION,” GOP Chair Ronna Romney McDaniel wrote on Twitter Sunday.
