How may the Speaker of the House be impeached in the event of gross violation of Constitutional law?

considering that Constitutional law protects free speech, free exercise of argument within established decorum for all Senate and House members?

There is no procedure for such for members of Congress. What can happen though is expulsion, where 2/3ds of the chamber votes to expel a member of Congress (although these votes are almost always unanimous or within a few votes of being so), with the seat declared vacant.

    Probably the same way the president is impeached for war crimes, genocide or misleading the American people, abuse of power, taking away constitutional rights…
