President Donald Trump on Monday tweeted he can't be impeached, denying claims he obstructed justice concerning special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation.

"Only high crimes and misdemeanors can lead to impeachment," Trump tweeted. "There were no crimes by me (No Collusion, No Obstruction), so you can't impeach. It was the Democrats that committed the crimes, not your Republican President! Tables are finally turning on the Witch Hunt!"

Several Democrats have called for impeachment following the release of Mueller's report, which details at least 10 times Trump might have obstructed justice, though the special counsel did not conclude the president committed a crime.

Mueller wrote "the president's efforts to influence the investigation were mostly unsuccessful, but that is largely because the persons who surrounded the president declined to carry out orders or accede to his requests."

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., is scheduled to host a conference call Monday with House Democrats to formulate a strategy following the report's release.

House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler, D-N.Y., told NBC News on Sunday  he has not ruled out impeachment, but said Congress will "have to hear from" Mueller and Attorney General William Barr before they can proceed, if they choose to impeach.

"Some of this would be impeachable," Nadler said, referring to the allegations in the report. "Obstruction of justice, if proven, would be impeachable."
