If the objection to the sufficiency of the articles of impeachment is not sustained
by a majority of the members of the senate, the defendant must be ordered to immediately
answer the articles of impeachment. If the defendant pleads guilty, the senate shall render judgment of conviction against
the defendant. If the defendant pleads not guilty or refuses to plead, the senate shall, at the time
that it designates, proceed to try the impeachment.
