Initiatives Exist to Protect Majority Rights from Unlawful Minorities
Spencer Cox is Lying to the People of Utah when he states that the US Constitution forbids the Recall of Corrupt United States Senators. Any law that can be passed through the State Legislature can be placed on the ballot for the people to vote upon. There has to be a mechanism to remove rogue US Senators and Congressmen besides waiting for their term to expire. Otherwise, we are empowering Tyrants and disenfranchising the majority of the people they were elected to represent.

There was a Recall Law Proposed in the Utah Legislature.

The Bill was Voted Down. The Utah Legislature Chose to side with the Money over the People.
The Utah Constitution Guarantees the Right to Recall ALL Elected Officials. State and Federal
All political power is inherent in the people; and all free governments are founded on their authority for their equal protection and benefit, and they have the right to alter or reform their government as the public welfare may require.

The United States Constitution DOES NOT Prohibit Recall by the People. In spite of the Fact that the Senate can Discipline Its Own Members.
Expulsion Article I, section 5, of the U.S. Constitution provides that each house of Congress may "…punish its members for disorderly behavior, and, with the concurrence of two-thirds, expel a member." Since 1789 the Senate has expelled only 15 of its entire membership. Censure Article I, section 5, of the U.S. Constitution provides that "Each House [of Congress] may determine the Rules of its proceedings, punish its members for disorderly behavior, and, with the concurrence of two-thirds, expel a member." Censure is a form of discipline used by the Senate against its members (sometimes referred to as condemnation or denouncement). A formal statement of disapproval, a censure does not remove a senator from office. Since 1789 the Senate has censured nine of its members.
In Fact, The US Constitution Forbids the Federal Government from Interfering in the Rights of the States or the People.
The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.
