President Trump expressed “vindication” regarding former special counsel Robert Mueller’s testimony on Capitol Hill Wednesday. 

While Mueller made clear his report does not exonerate the president, the President still considered the day a victory. Mr. Trump told reporters on the White House South Lawn before leaving for a closed fundraiser in West Virginia. “So we had a very good day today — the Republican Party, our country. There was no defense of what Robert Mueller was trying to defend, in all fairness to Robert Mueller, whether his performance was a bad one or a good one. I think everybody understands that.”

Mueller generally stuck to the conclusions of his report Wednesday, often declining to comment and referring members of Congress back to that report.
