After a period of silence, Robert Mueller came forward to give an additional statement on his report to explain that while he couldn’t charge Donald Trump with any crimes while he remained President, but this does not mean, by any stretch, “total exoneration.”

“If we had confidence that the president did not commit a crime, we would have said so,” said Mueller. He then heavily implied that the way to go is for Congress to continue the investigation and opt for impeachment.

This statement has revitalized calls for Trump’s impeachment among the public and many members of the Democratic party, including presidential candidates Elizabeth Warren and Kamala Harris.

Trump and the White House have officially responded to Mueller’s statement, and by “officially,” we mean they tweeted about it.

This is, of course, not how criminal justice in the U.S. works, especially in this case. The case is far from closed, as many on Twitter have tried (and are still trying) to explain to the President many times.

You know, when they’re not just mocking him into the ground.

Donald also retweeted Sarah Huckabee Sanders’ tweet about the White House’s response, which is just an extended version of Trump’s Twitter dismissal.

As we all know, the only way to move on with your life over something is to get in front of the entire American public and stress that your report is only the beginning and Congress needs to pick up what you find an run with it all the way to Impeachment Junction.

These were the responses in between everybody just repeating that same Mueller quote about how if he had found that Trump hadn’t committed any crimes he would have said that. That’ll be one for the history books.
