The Senate decides the case. But by the time the Senate even gets the case, the impeachment has already happened. The impeachment by the House is a little like an indictment in civil law. When the House impeaches someone, they decide that there is enough evidence to bring the case to the Senate for a decision.

Presidents are impeached by the House, but tried by the Senate. Impeaching someone is essentially charging them with a crime. The Senate then hears the trial and serves as the jury. The trial in the Senate is presided over by the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court.
