Description and Holding Information
Senate. Rules for Senate sitting as High Court of Impeachment, 1826
The Senate rules for impeachment, numbers ten and fourteen, were annulled and replaced for the trial of Samuel Blagge. If either side made a motion,
it had to be in writing and handed to the Court. The Court read it aloud and each side could make remarks. Then the Court "owned" the motion and
could either decide on the spot or go out to talk about it. When the Court returned, the decision was announced. It was the same for questioning a
witness--whomever brought the witness examined him first, then the other side, then back to the first side. The Court could not ask questions until the
examination was complete. Any objections were treated in the same manner as motions. (Digitized from a microfilm copy of title originally held by the
Massachusetts State Library).
Title:   Further rules for the government of the Senate when sitting as a high court of impeachment, for the trial of Samuel Blagge, Esq.
