The Constitution for the United States of America

Article 1
Section 2 - Paragraph 5

The House of Representatives shall choose their Speaker and other officers; and shall have the sole power of impeachment.

The House of Representatives can choose their Officers; and has the sole Power of Impeachment. But Impeachment power does not preclude the People from declaring a public servant to have violated his, or her, oath of office and to immediately remove such person from office. The People do not have to proceed through an impeachment process, they must bring charges before a properly convened Superior Common Law Court, and the court shall have the power to remove the person from office.

Just a word of clarification as to why the People do not have to follow the Impeachment process. That process is for our public servants to follow in removing another public servant. Since the Oath of Office is a binding contract between the people and our public servant, any violation of the Oath of Office is grounds for immediate discipline or termination.
