Best Answer

The Federal House of Representatives has the sole power to impeach or bring charges against government officials (except members of Congress.)

A majority vote is needed in the House to Impeach.

The Senate has the sole power to try the impeachment case. A two-thirds vote of the senators present is needed for conviction.

When a president is tried, the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court presides over the Senate.
