It's been a wild week in Washington as Democrats try to figure out if they've got the goods to impeach President Donald Trump over a controversial phone call to Ukraine. And the president does what he does best ... spin, deflect, make his opposition apoplectic in their frustration.

Somewhere in the mix is Joe Biden, somehow.

If all what we're read in the news weren't crazy enough, now the current Democratic presidential front-runner wants news networks to stop booking Rudy Giuliani, the president's lawyer, on its news programs. More from Fox News:

"Joe Biden's presidential campaign requested in a letter on Sunday that major news networks not invite President Trump's personal attorney Rudy Giuliani any more, after Giuliani spent the morning on a series of talk shows aggressively highlighting what he called Biden's apparently corrupt dealings in Ukraine and China. The Biden campaign wrote to NBC News, CBS News, Fox News and CNN to voice 'grave concern that you continue to book Rudy Giuliani on your air to spread false, debunked conspiracy theories on behalf of Donald Trump.'"

Surely the man, or at least the man's campaign, can't be serious. Are political campaigns now requesting certain people be kept off the air? That's not un-American, it's not anti-American, it's North Korean.

Thanks, you all, but let the news people run the news business.

If anybody should request that Rudy Giuliani stay off the air, it should be the Trump campaign. Before the man gets himself, and his client, in more trouble.
