Federalist No. 66 (Federalist Number 66) is an essay by Alexander Hamilton and the sixty-sixth of the Federalist Papers. It was published on March 8, 1788 under the pseudonym Publius, the name under which all the Federalist Papers were published. The title is, "Objections to the Power of the Senate To Set as a Court for Impeachments Further Considered".

In this paper, Hamilton addresses specific objections to the power of the Senate to try impeachment cases, a discussion that is continued from the previous paper.
