Only one in six voters now supports the storming of the Capitol, but many of them still think the election was stolen, partly because, shamefully, Republicans have not dared to tell them the extent of Mr. Trump’s lies. Now is the time to start.

Mr. Trump will never forgive those whom, like Mitch McConnell, the Senate Leader, he judges to have failed him by acknowledging Mr. Biden’s election victory. Having begun to move against him, they should finish the job.
