In a letter to House Democrats on January 10, Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) said their views were “valued” on Section 3 of the 14th Amendment as well as impeachment and the 25th Amendment. Freshman Representative Cori Bush tweeted that she would introduce a resolution to expel members of Congress who objected to the Electoral College, stating they “violated the 14th Amendment.”

The only problem is that the Constitution does not give any directive on how Section 3 of the 14th Amendment should be invoked.

“It’s not automatic,” Laurence Tribe, a Harvard constitutional law professor, told Newsweek. “It only applies to those people who were guilty of engaging in insurrection or rebellion. And someone still has to determine who those people were, whether the president was himself guilty in engaging in the insurrection.”
