The NYT Gets *Close* To There

How do you read the paragraph in bold?

The Times reported on Sunday that the F.B.I. director, James Comey, was so alarmed by Mr. Trump’s fact-free claim — which implicitly accused the F.B.I. of breaking the law by wiretapping an American citizen at a president’s behest — that he was asking the Justice Department to publicly call it false. In other words, the F.B.I. director was demanding that Justice officially declare the president to be misleading the public.
This is a dangerous moment, which requires Congress and members of this administration to look beyond partisan maneuvering and tend to the health of the democracy itself.
That's hinting at impeachment, right? And this isn't from Paul Krugman or Charles Blow; this is the New York Times Editorial Board. Not saying impeachment is likely; in fact, I still don't think it is. But if I'm interpreting it correctly, it took only six weeks before the Paper of Record considers adopting removal of the new "president."
