    The only correct answer is D.  It's the impeachment process power of Congress that checks and balances the judicial branch.

    Some might argue that A is also correct - but whilst "We the People" are the government - elections in and of themselves are not considered a part of the three branches and therefore check and balance between them do not apply.

    Rayal is wrong.  The House and Senate are both parts of the Legislative Branch.  And neither has the power to veto the actions of the other.

    The House and Senate can and do override each other in the passing of bills. The house can pass a bill and the senate can either vote for it, amend it or reject it completely.  I never said Veto, that would be the President.


    The Executive, the Congressional, and the Judiciary all have a way to check and balance one another.

    The Executive can veto bills passed by congress

    The Judiciary can overrule any law as unconstitutional.
