Wall St. Journal Editorial Board: Donald Trump’s Final Days – The best outcome would be for him to resign to spare the U.S. another impeachment fight. Quote:

“We know an act of grace by Mr. Trump isn’t likely. In any case this week has probably finished him as a serious political figure. He has cost Republicans the House, the White House, and now the Senate. Worse, he has betrayed his loyal supporters by lying to them about the election and the ability of Congress and Mr. Pence to overturn it. He has refused to accept the basic bargain of democracy, which is to accept the result, win or lose.

“It is best for everyone, himself included, if he goes away quietly.”
