The divisive nature of US politics is on display today, with Republicans and Democrats having opposite take-outs from evidence given at Donald Trump's impeachment inquiry.

The Democrats are triumphant, claiming the evidence is damning, but the President, and his loyal supporters, maintain he's innocent of the alleged crimes.
