Key Mueller finding: in May 2017, after Trump learned from Sessions that Rosenstein had appointed Mueller, Trump “slumped back in his chair and said, ‘Oh my God. This is terrible. This is the end of my Presidency. I'm fucked.”

A former senior admin official confirmed this comment to me saying it came across to WH aides as “tactical bullying.”

...agreed to testify, it was not necessary for me to respond to statements made in the “Report” about me, some of which are total bullshit & only given to make the other person look good (or me to look bad). This was an Illegally Started Hoax that never should have happened, a...

Pres Trump now saying the Mueller Report is “total bullshit” after earlier praising it for exonerating him. Yesterday, the president and WH aides were saying yesterday was the best day of his presidency. Now it seems Trump is watching TV and not liking detailed Mueller reporting.

The thing is, it never made any sense that the deputy press secretary knew “countless” FBI employees, much less that they had all called her to support the president’s decision. Just glad to know my instinct was right.

Sarah Sanders admitted she lied to the White House press. Does she have any credibility left? https://cnn.it/2XtNkUn

WH held conf call with surrogates this afternoon to talk about Mueller report. According to listener on the call, a WH official talked about Mueller’s inability to clear Trump of obstruction. The official said “that was a political statement not a prosecutotorial statement.”

Another talking point from the conference call: “the president did not fire Sessions, Mueller or Rosenstein even though he had the power to do so.” (Trump just tweeted this)

Trump dodged Mueller report as he left WH. He did not talk to reporters as he departed WH on way to Florida. WH aides had said he would talk to reporters.

Watch this video and the easy manner in which Sarah Sanders publicly said “countless” FBI employees reached out to her, thanking the White House for firing the FBI Director. As you watch, realize she later told Mueller her comments were actually baseless.

CNN reporting confirmed in Mueller report. At Trump campaign national security adv board meeting in 2016, George Papadopoulos and campaign advisor J.D. Gordon "stated that Trump was interested in and receptive to the idea of a meeting with Putin."

The Mueller Report says @PressSec told investigators that her remarks in response to this question on May 10, 2017 "were not founded on anything."
