Thanks

DC ST § 16-3503

No mention was made of travel expenses.

"DC ST" means District of Columbia Statutes, not the United States Code, so no steak dinner on me. Although if I get to London in the next few years, I'll be glad to meet for a pint, and meal of bangers, mashy peas, and spotted dick.

Even if the United States Constitution did not give Congress exclusive power to remove the President form office, which it does, you can't stretch the quo warranto provision of the DC Statutes into allowing the President of the United Staes to be removed from office, just because the White House is in DC, any more than you could use a provision of the Austin City Charter to remove the Governor of Texas from office, just because the Governor's mansion is in Austin.
