    The Constitution is set up on a system of checks and balances, and Congress holds the reigns....

    yes, the house can charge the president / impeachment....

    but only the senate can convict or acquit him of the impeachment accusations/charges

    and only the senate can approve treaties, and only the senate can consent or reject judicial choices, and cabinet choices of the president....

    and, the senate has the filibuster, which has stopped near all house legislation from getting passed.

    i don't think the house has more power than the senate, just different, responsibilities.
