    Ok, constitutionalists, what is wrong with this statement.

      "Of course, every law must be passed through the Senate, but Senators also have the authority to confirm judicial nominees, ratify treaties, and impeach federal officers (including the president) under Article 1, Section 8 of the United States Constitution. "

    The author is Mitt Ryan, and I have no idea what, if any bias he may have, but thats a big boo boo.  In fact, its TWO big boo boos

    The House impeaches and the Senate tries.

    Ding! 

    And Article 1, Section 8 doesn't mention impeachment.  Section 2 states the House, "shall have sole power of impeachment"

    Only laws in respect to their powers in the senate.

    The President ratifies treaties after  2/3 vote in the senate to advice and consent.

    The house impeaches federal officers, not the senate.
