Ancillary Administration

n. the set of charges drafted against a public official to initiate the impeachment process. These articles do not usually pursue the strict form and accuracy of an indictment. Though being general in form, the articles do contain so much certainty, as to enable the party to put himself on the proper defence, and in case of an acquittal, to avail himself of it, as a bar to another impeachment.
