The United States Senate is one of two political bodies that comprise the US Congress. It is composed of 100 senators, 2 from each state, which serve six-year terms. They are elected directly by the citizens of each state. The main duties of the senate are to create and vote on legislation, confirm presidential appointments, and agree on treaties made with other countries. If a president is impeached, the senate is also responsible for holding a trial and deciding whether or not the president should be removed from office. This role could become relevant in the near future given recent political developments involving the Trump presidency.
