    The stage is set for a senate impeachment trial of US President Donald Trump next month.

    A day after Trump's impeachment, a sharp partisan divide is emerging between Democrats and Republicans.

    Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has asked his fellow Republicans to correct what he called a "toxic" impeachment of Trump.

    And, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi says she will not send the case to the Senate until she is convinced of a fair trial.
