Senate Impeachment Trial Resources
Few people today know what a high-stakes Senate impeachment trial would look like. That’s worrisome given Mitch McConnell’s, R-Ky., admission this week that the Senate would have no choice but to hold a trial if the House impeaches President Trump.
The resources below will help readers get up to speed on the ins and outs of the procedures that govern the Senate’s proceedings when it is sitting as a court of impeachment.
There are 26 rules of procedure that govern the Senate’s proceedings when it is sitting on impeachment trials. These rules were last revised in 1986. They are designed to facilitate impeachment trials fairly and expeditiously. The 1986 revision can be found here. The report issued by the Committee on Rules and Administration in 1986 to accompany the revision explains succinctly both the Impeachment Rules and the changes adopted by the Senate that year. The report can be found here.
The Senate adopted supplementary rules during the Clinton impeachment trial by passing two resolutions. The text of both S. Res. 16 and S. Res. 30 can be found here and here.
