What did Samuel Chase do for a living?

Samuel Chase was a lawyer in the late 17th and early 18th centuries. He was also a US Supreme Court justice who served from 1796 until his death in 1811.Although Chase was a signatory to the Declaration of Independence, he is best remembered as the only US Supreme Court justice to be impeached. The House of Representatives brought charges against him in 1804 because they believed he'd unfairly punished a member of the Republican Party during a Circuit Court trial by imposing a sentence that was too harsh for the crime. The Republicans allegedly believed Chase, a Federalist, was allowing his judgment to be clouded by his political opinions.Some historians believe the impeachment was a political maneuver done at the behest of President Jefferson, who wanted to replace some of the federalist justices on the Court with members of his Republican Party.Samuel Chase was acquitted of the impeachment charges at his Senate trial in 1805 and remained on the Court until his death in 1811.
