• Impeachment Hearings Are Turning Out to Be ‘The Hearsay Hearings’

    Surge Summary: A huge problem for the president’s Democratic accusers in the Impeachment Hearings: so far, almost all the testimony against him is “hearsay” — which would be essentially useless in a court of law.

    My friends, it is difficult to overstate just how weak the Democrats’ case truly is.

    Neither of [Wednesday’s] opening witnesses have ever talked to the president.  They never talked to White House Chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney.  They never talked to Rudy Giuliani.  Nor were they on the July phone call with President Zelensky.

    In one of the more revealing moments yesterday, Ambassador Taylor admitted that he had little of substance to offer when he said, “What I can do here for you today is tell you what I heard from people.”

    This is a huge problem for the Democrats.  And don’t take my word for it.  Even CNN’s legal analyst Jeffrey Toobin says it’s a problem.

    Taylor and Kent testified previously behind closed doors.  They spoke for hours and hours yesterday.  And the only thing of any substance to come out of it was . . . more hearsay — that one of Taylor’s aides allegedly overheard a conversation at a restaurant between the ambassador to the European Union and the president.

    This hearsay would never be allowed in any court.  But the left’s excitement over this additional hearsay is just more evidence that it is desperately trying to manufacture something that doesn’t exist.
