(TNS) The only trait more galling than Democrat hypocrisy is their arrogance.
The Garbage Party is all in a tizzy because President Donald Trump has instructed White House staff not to cooperate with the phony baloney impeachment circus. This, of course, comesÂ after the administration and the president fully cooperated with Robert Mueller and the deep state ‘Russia collusion’ investigation, which was also a hoax.

Now, former Vice President Joe Biden, current leading 2020 Democratic presidential contender, saysÂ he won’t voluntarily appear before any impeachment trial in the Senate because it’s okay when Democrats obstruct.
Or something like that.
â€œNo Iâ€™m not going to let them take their eye off the ball. The President is the one who has committed impeachable crimes and Iâ€™m not going to let him divert from that, I’m not going to let anyone divert from that,” he told Fox News correspondent Peter Doocy.

How is appearing as a witness ‘allowing the Senate to divert’ from the president? The only reason the upper chamber would even have an impeachment trial is because Democrats in the House returned articles of impeachment against President Donald Trump.
No, we think theÂ real reason Biden doesn’t want to testify is because he doesn’t want to have to explainÂ hisÂ quid pro quo with Ukraine.
That timeÂ he actually threatened to withhold aid from the country — which was under attack from Russia at the time — unless Kiev fired a prosecutor looking into a corrupt company that was paying his son 80 grand a month to be a ‘board member.’
And let’s always remember that President Trump was investigating corruption as it relates to Ukraine (and the Bidens…and the DNC…and Hillary Clinton’s 2016 campaign).
The one good thing about any Senate impeachment trial is that Republicans, who are in the majority and thus control the chamber, will be permitted to callÂ their own witnesses to testify…and you can bet Joe and Hunter Biden will be on the list. Hillary Clinton might be as well and any number of DNC operatives who can’t lie because they’ll be under oath.
And oh, by the way, the longer Republicans keep Joe Biden on the witness stand, the less opportunity he’ll have to campaign.
In fact, we wouldn’t be surprised if Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell stretched out the proceedings in order to keep a number of Democratic senators who are running for president off of the campaign trail and in their Senate seats.
NowÂ those proceedings will be popcorn-worthy, if they happen.
