The House hearings to impeach President Donald J. Trump are a flogging of Joe Biden. I can’t believe the House Democrats aren’t smart enough to see what they are doing to the former Vice President.

The first public attack on Joe Biden came when the billionaire former mayor of New York City, Michael Bloomberg, announced he was running for president as a Democrat. His announcement was followed by talking heads and media personalities saying that the media mogul wouldn’t be running if he thought former Vice President Joe Biden could win the nomination.

The next blow to Biden came when former Massachusetts Governor Deval Patrick announced he would be running against Biden for the Democratic Party nomination for president. Deval Patrick is a close confidant of President Barack Obama.

Obama’s former Attorney General Eric Holder has also publicly discussed running against Biden for the nomination.

Meanwhile, President Obama has refused to endorse Joe Biden and Biden has had to say he hasn’t asked for his former running mate's support.

This week, the Democrats have opened hearings on the activities of President Trump to investigate the activities of the Biden family in Ukraine. Democrats in the House know the business relationships of the Biden family will be at the forefront of the hearings.

This isn’t a hearing to impeach President Donald J. Trump. This is a hearing to destroy the presidential campaign of Joe Biden.

He didn’t run against Hilary Clinton in 2016 for a reason.
