President Donald Trump's lawyer Rudy Giuliani insisted there was "nothing wrong" with the president's 2016 campaign taking information from the Russians, as House Democrats pledged stepped-up investigations into campaign misconduct and possible crimes of obstruction detailed in special counsel Robert Mueller's report.
In his report, released Thursday, Mueller found evidence of multiple instances of possible obstruction of justice - including discouraging others from cooperating with the Russian Federation probe and dangling possible pardons - but declined to make a "traditional" prosecutorial decision, leaving it to Congress.
Trump allies on Sunday pushed back on some instances of potential obstruction outlined by Mueller, including the president pressuring then-White House Counsel Donald McGahn to have Mueller fired in the early months of the investigation.
Other Democratic candidates, such as former Texas state Congressman Beto O'Rourke, have limited themselves to demanding that Congress sees the unredacted version of Mueller's report and hear from Mueller himself.
In his long-awaited report, special counsel Robert Mueller found that the evidence failed to establish "collusion" between the Trump campaign and Russian Federation.
The special counsel said the evidence did not establish that Trump asked or directed intelligence officials to "stop or interfere with the FBI's Russian Federation investigation".

The statement quoted a DOJ spokeswoman as saying the Mueller report was issued with "minimal redactions" and that some members of Congress would have access to a version with fewer redactions.
They also want Mueller to testify before Congress. Schiff said. "Is it the best thing for the country to take up an impeachment proceeding because to do otherwise sends a message that this conduct is somehow compatible with office?"
Afterward, Mr Ledgett wrote a memo about the conversation and Mr Trump's request.
"It is not OK for political campaigns to work with material stolen by foreign adversaries?" "I think that history will reflect that Bill Barr let the country down when it needed an attorney general of substance".
