1805: With Vice President Aaron Burr presiding, the United States Senate begins an impeachment trial against U.S. Supreme Court Justice Samuel Chase, who was impeached for allegedly letting his partisan Federalist leanings affect his court decisions. Chase would eventually be acquitted by the Senate on March 1, 1805. He is the only U.S. Supreme Court justice to have been impeached.
