The principle for discussion on this Constitution Monday comes from Article I.3.6, "If impeachment charges should be lodged against the President of the United States, the Chief Justice shall preside over the Senate during the impeachment hearing."
This principle gives the President the right to be judged by the highest judicial officer in the nation. It also gives the people of the nation the right to have someone besides the Vice President preside at the hearing.
