The Wrap reports:
The Wall Street Journal editorial board has joined the chorus of those in the media demanding Donald Trump resign as president.
This comes a day after the riots from Trump supporters, egged on by Trump himself, stormed the Capital in a last-gasp bid to overturn the election he lost to Joe Biden.
“This goes beyond merely refusing to concede defeat. In our view it crosses a constitutional line that Mr. Trump hasn’t previously crossed. It is impeachable,” the WSJ wrote.
The full editorial is behind a paywall.
The WSJ Editorial Board calls on Trump to resign and says his mishandling of yesterday’s events is an impeachable offense.
“This was an assault on the constitutional process of transferring power after an election.” https://t.co/WofFsIrrcN

In my NYT column I argue that Wednesday may have broken the fever. The WSJ edit board just called on Trump to resign.
