The United States Senate is the upper chamber of the U.S. Congress. Created by the Founding Fathers, the Senate acts as checks and balances for the House of Representatives. With its 100 members in total, two senators from each State, the Senate carries a fundamental role in the U.S. Legislative Branch. Its primary responsibilities include approving federal officers, ratifying international treaties, approving new legislation, and carrying out impeachment trials for federal servants.
