Response to babylonsister (Original post)

4. Members of the House are not removed by Impeachment: They are, however, subject to expulsion

from the House by a Two-Thirds vote of the Members:

Each House may determine the Rules of its Proceedings, punish its Members for disorderly Behaviour, and, with the Concurrence of two thirds, expel a Member

This being quite unlikely, based on the current composition of the House, one might wanth to drop the idea in order to pursue more productive avenues of change
