    This week's historic impeachment of US President Donald Trump by the Dem-controlled House of Representatives has prompted debate from every political nook and cranny in the US, ranging from the fairness of Trump's prosecution to Pelosi's deliberate delay to hand over the documents to Senate.

    Trump, the third president in US history to be impeached, again scathingly responded to Pelosi by alleging that she was engaging in backstage maneuvers to stall the GOP and Trump's much-anticipated trial in the upper chamber of Capitol Hill.

    Trump's verbal challenge to the Democrat's successful effort to impeach him has sparked turbulent comments on social media. Netizens have ridiculed the impeachment fuss.

    ​Donald Trump Jr., the son of the president, joined his father's verbal attack on Pelosi.

    Following Trump's impeachment by the House, the Senate is required - with no specific timetable - by Constitutional law to bring the president to trial. As the House has not yet delivered the impeachment articles to the Senate, it reportedly remains unclear when Trump's trial will begin.

    Democrats launched the impeachment inquiry against Trump in September, after a whistleblower complained that the president pushed Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky to investigate allegations of corrupt business practices by the Bidens in Ukraine.
