WASHINGTON – Top House Democrats said Sunday they will decide soon whether to pursue impeachment against President Donald Trump, while Trump attorney Rudy Giuliani argued that it would have been okay for the president to have accepted Russia's help during the 2016 election.

Dems run from impeachment post-Mueller

Trump and impeachment : where Democrats stand after Mueller. Asked if Trump thought Russian interference helped him win, Giuliani told NBC: “Whether he did or he didn’t, I think it’s quite clear that there are a lot of factors that go into any election and the reality is he was elected president .”

The Democrats "may" take up impeachment depending on "what is the best thing for the country," said Rep. Adam Schiff, D-Calif., chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, speaking on ABC's This Week.

Giuliani, meanwhile, said there would not have been anything necessarily wrong with the president and campaign aides taking information from the Russians about Democratic opponent Hillary Clinton. Giuliani also said Trump would have been within his rights to have Mueller fired, a key event behind claims that Trump tried to obstruct justice.

“There's nothing wrong with taking information from Russians," Giuliani said on CNN's State of the Union. "It depends on where it came from.”

The report also said Trump and his campaign welcomed the help from the Russians, including stolen emails from Democrats and the use of social media to push fake news about Clinton.

The report listed 10 episodes in which Trump tried to interfere in the investigation, including his demands to aides at one point that Mueller be removed from his post. Mueller's team said it did not determine whether Trump's actions amounted to obstruction of justice in a legal sense, and suggested Congress might want to take up the issue.

Describing parts of the Mueller report as "warped" and "biased," Giuliani said there was no collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia – not that there would necessarily be anything wrong with that.

"It depends on the stolen material," Giuliani said on NBC's Meet The Press.

"We have to hear from Barr, we have to hear from Mueller," Nadler said. "We have to get the entire report."

As he has throughout the weekend, Trump himself – who initially hailed the Mueller report as vindication – continued to attack some of its critical findings.

"The Trump Haters and Angry Democrats who wrote the Mueller Report were devastated by the No Collusion finding!" he tweeted on Easter Sunday from his Mar-a-Lago resort in Palm Beach, Fla. "Nothing but a total 'hit job' which should never have been allowed to start in the first place!"
