In simplest terns, since the U.S. Constitution has NOT provided a means for the citizens to remove Representatives or Senators and has NOT forbidden the States or the people from doing so, then it is reserved to the States or the people.

I'm not sure about that.

The Constitution expressly grants Congress the power to be the judge of its own members in Article I Section 5.
