The Chief Justice of the United States is the head of the judiciary of the United States federal government and is the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court of the United States. The Chief Justice is one of nine justices on the United States Supreme Court; the other eight are the so-called Associate Justices. From 1789 to 1866, the office title was also Chief Justice of the Supreme Court. The Chief Justice presides over the Supreme Court and has a major influence on the court's agenda. In the case of the impeachment of an American president (which has happened three times, namely Andrew Johnson, Bill Clinton and Donald Trump), the Chief Justice presides over the process in the Senate. Furthermore, he has traditionally been tasked with administering the oath of office to the president during presidential inaugurations. The first Chief Justice was John Jay; In 2005, John Roberts was appointed as the seventeenth Chief Justice.
