Trump after Mueller report release: ‘I’m having a good day’
President Trump on Thursday framed special counsel Robert Mueller’s report on the now-closed Russia investigation as a complete vindication, in his first response after its release.
Speaking at an event with wounded military service members, Trump noted they were having a “good day” at the White House and added that he was as well.
“I’m having a good day too. It was called ‘no collusion. No obstruction.’ I’m having a good time,” Trump said to applause in the East Room. “There never was, by the way, and there never will be.”
His remarks came just minutes after the Justice Department published the report, which detailed Mueller’s findings in his two-year investigation into Moscow’s interference in the 2016 presidential election and links to the Trump campaign.
Trump said “we do have to get to the bottom of these things,” referring to his call to investigate the origins of the Russia probe.
“This should never happen to another president again, this hoax,” he said.

Trump deserves to enjoy this moment. He has had this investigation hanging over him for two years.
As usual, he used Twitter to mark the occasion:
