Can the 14th amendment be used against members of Congress ?

That aided and abetted trump, or rioters act of sedition, in any way, be banned from ever holding federal office again? They conspired to stall the proceedings, feed information to rioters, and obstruct the counting of the ballots to aid trump and the rioters commit felonies against our government. Can they be removed from office using this now? Will the members giving them a tour before this happened also be included , and be removed?

1. Ask yourself

after you have read it here: https://www.law.cornell.edu/constitution/amendmentxiv
Here's the section that is relevant.

Section 3.

No person shall be a Senator or Representative in Congress, or elector of President and Vice President, or hold any office, civil or military, under the United States, or under any state, who, having previously taken an oath, as a member of Congress, or as an officer of the United States, or as a member of any state legislature, or as an executive or judicial officer of any state, to support the Constitution of the United States, shall have engaged in insurrection or rebellion against the same, or given aid or comfort to the enemies thereof. But Congress may by a vote of two-thirds of each House, remove such disability.


You can now make an educated judgement to answer your question.

If so, then all democrat congress members who objected to certified GW Bush in 2000 and 2004 and President Trump's electoral votes should be  as well.

Be careful what you ask for DUmmies...
Trump Won.  Get over it!

Left-Wing Terrorists Bombed The Senate In 1983. Bill Clinton Let Them Out Of Prison Early — At Jerry Nadler’s Request

On his final day in office, Jan. 20, 2001, President Bill Clinton commuted the sentences of a pair of radical leftists serving time for bombing the U.S. Capitol building, where a 1983 blast shattered the second floor of the Senate wing.

...

Rosenberg is now a prominent left-wing activist, who, early last summer sat on the board of Thousand Currents which poured $10 million into causes for social justice including Black Lives Matter, according to Fox News.

...


According to the New York Post in 2001, New York Democratic Rep. Jerry Nadler, who today serves as the House Judiciary Committee chairman, played a “crucial role” in Clinton’s decision to commute Rosenberg’s sentence. Nadler’s rabbi, a Nadler spokesman at the time told the Post, gave “compelling information from [Rosenberg’s] parole hearing” to the Manhattan congressman, who, in turn, passed on the material to the White House counsel’s office. That transfer, the Post reported, played a “key role” in the president’s decision to include Rosenberg on his list of 140 last-minute pardons just moments before George W. Bush took the White House.

Rosenberg’s case is a reminder of the long, growing list of left-wing acts of terrorism either excused or endorsed by Democrats and their allies in corporate media, who now condemn the violent attacks on the U.S. Capitol that came from right-wing extremists last week.

Nadler, in his role as House Judiciary chair, has been among the most vocal in Congress, outraged at the Capitol chaos that ensued and demanding that the president be impeached after failing to successfully remove Trump last year.

What!?! Do you mean that they want to overturn the Will of the People in their states/districts?

Frankly, I think the Rs should have taken advantage of the moment back in 2017 when Bernie Sanders incited one of his lunatic Bernie Bros to attempt the assassination of a couple of dozen GOP Reps and Senators. He should have been expelled from the Senate.
