Senate Begins Impeachment Process For Kent

On Wednesday the United States Senate officially began the impeachment process for imprisoned Federal Judge Samuel Kent when they accepted the articles of impeachment from the House of Representatives. Senate leaders have set up a bipartisan committee to prepare for the impeachment trial. Judge Kent, who recently began serving his 33 month federal prison sentence, is being impeached for alleged sexual harassment against his secretary and case manager, obstructing a judicial proceeding by making false statements and making false and misleading statement to federal agents during their investigation.

Kent is the first federal judge impeached in 20 years and only the thirteenth federal judge to ever be impeached.
