To politics now and the shock waves following the Mueller report. Revelations, Democrats sharply divided on how exactly to proceed as president trump sours on the report. After his initial celebratory view. ABC's white house correspondent Tara Palmeri reporting from west palm beach tonight where the president is spending the holiday. Reporter: President trump spending his Easter weekend firing up his political base, golfing with rush Limbaugh, and unleashing on Twitter. Tweeting more than a dozen tweets including, the Russia hoax is dead, and then blasting special counsel Robert Mueller's team as trump haters, saying the report was written, quote, nastily. Adding, quote, the Mueller report should not have been authorized in the first place. It's a stark contrast from his initial reaction to the Mueller report. I'm having a good day too. It was called no collusion, no obstruction. Reporter: The president's personal lawyer Rudy Giuliani telling ABC news trump is now, quote, frustrated by what he sees as a one-sided report.

There are some things that are bigger than politics, so I have called on the house to initiate impeachment proceedings. Reporter: But today, house speaker Nancy Pelosi's office urging caution in a statement, saying that congress should take it, quote, one step at a time. The report raises more questions and concerns that we believe the American people deserve answers to. Other presidential candidates weighing in on impeachment. I think he may well deserve it, but my focus, since I'm not part of congress, but I am part of 2020, is to give him a decisive defeat at the ballot box. I think we should have the chance to ask a lot of questions and continue the investigations and see where they lead. I think it would be perfectly reasonable for congress to open up impeachment proceedings. And Tara Palmeri joins us now from west palm beach. I know you spoke with the president's lawyer, Rudy Giuliani, who is telling you their new strategy in dealing with congress will be able to fight all of the future investigations related to impeachment?
