Trial or Hearing?

Josh Marshall raises a good semantics question: Are the sessions two veteran members of Congress face legitimately called "trials" or are they hearings? I thought hearings, too. Here's CQ's description, and doesn't mention the word trial. But The New York Times likes it. "Trial" certainly seems to have some extra weight to it.
