27. That article of impeachment had no support.

The Swing Around the Circle's impact was apparent even in the articles of impeachment, with the tenth of 11 articles charging that the President

"did...make and declare, with a loud voice certain intemperate, inflammatory, and scandalous harangues, and therein utter loud threats and bitter menaces, as well against Congress as the laws of the United States duly enacted thereby, amid the cries, jeers and laughter of the multitudes then assembled in hearing."

However, the impeachment managers neglected to bring this article to a vote in the Senate when it became clear that it had no support.
