Suppose for argument’s sake Joe Biden IS guilty of corruption. Don’t Dems want to know about it?

The Democrats are in something of a prickly situation with the impeachment trial they have clamored for for three years and which begins today. The entire case against the president turns on whether he coerced his Ukrainian counterpart into opening an investigation into corruption charges that may involve one of the Democratic candidates for president, Joe Biden. Aren’t Democrats even mildly curious to know whether any of the allegations concerning Biden are true, especially since he is running to become the next president?

We already know from Biden’s own words — a boast actually — that as vice president he committed the very crime Trump is now being impeached over. As he said several times on the campaign trail, he threatened to withhold $1 billion in loan guarantees for Ukraine if officials did not fire the country’s top prosecutor, who was pursuing a corruption investigation against his son Hunter.

Democrats, who have branded Donald Trump a “threat to democracy,” have become so wrapped up in their obsession with removing him from office that they have lost sight of the very real possibility that another threat to democracy might replace him.

Will this presidential election be the most important in American history?

On Sunday, Trump’s attorney Rudolph Giuliani appeared on New York AM 970 radio’s “The Cats Roundtable,” where he expressed his desire to be a witness at the Senate impeachment trial. “I’d love to be a witness — because I’m a potential witness in the trial — and explain to everyone the corruption that I found in Ukraine, that far out-surpasses any I’ve ever seen before, involving Joe Biden and a lot of other Democrats,” he said.

Expect Democrats to fight tooth and nail against Giuliani’s testifying — not because of the certainty that he’s lying but the uncertainty that he’s not. (RELATED: Nadler: Hunter Biden must not be called to testify)
