17. Look again: I already provided the direct and relevant quote from Article I, Section 5, Paragraph 2:

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

If two-thirds of a House agree, that House can expel a member. So the House of Representatives can expel a Representative without any action by the Senate, and the Senate can expel a Senator without any action by the House of Representatives

Impeachment, on the other hand, is an action of the House of Representatives that then requires a Senate trial
