President Trump criticized

Joe Biden criticized Donald Trump for getting the Justice Department involved in the matter. While referring to the transcription of the phone call released by the White House, Biden also stressed it seemed awful hard to conclude that it is 'an impeachable offense' and violation of the responsibility President Trump holds in the Constitution. The former Vice President also believes that Congress must hold him accountable as the transcription clearly showed 'abuse of power' and the actions have undermined the democracy of the US.

Impeachment inquiry launched

Speaker Nancy Pelosi launched an official impeachment inquiry into Donald Trump on September 25. The House of Commons will now look to actions that according to Pelosi have violated the Constitution. Fundamentally, impeachment is just the first stage of the process divided into two parts in the Constitution to prosecute and remove a President or any other federal official from the office. The House of Representatives has the power to impeach any official who commits a crime like bribery, treason or other misdemeanors from the office. However, the final decision still remains with the Senate to remove the President or any other official after holding a trial. More importantly, impeachment is not a legal trial, but a political trial.
