    If you expect one side to abide by legal rules of evidence then surely you must also agree that all witnesses should be forced to testify. One can’t work without the other.
    I heard, from someone, that you confessed to their cousin’s best friend, of being a serial killer. Must be true.

    Sure there are, but are you claiming that any of those exceptions apply in the case of the hearsay witnesses from yesterday?

    Two witnesses, hours of testimony and neither one advanced the case.

    Actually, they did. It does not surprise me that you missed it.

    More like a lump of Jell-O...

    Ukrainian foreign minister Vadym Prystaiko said Thursday that U.S. Ambassador to the E.U. Gordon Sondland had “never” linked U.S. aid to Ukrainian investigations of the 2016 elections or the Biden’s role in stopping a probe of Burisma.

    Prystaiko spoke the day after the first public hearings in the House Intelligence Committee as part of the “impeachment inquiry,” where two witnesses said they came to believe there had been such a link — though only some time after Politico reported on August 28 that aid had been held up by the Trump administration.

    One of the witnesses, Chargé d’affaires Bill Taylor, introduced new evidence that a staffer told him recently that he overheard Sondland speaking to President Donald Trump the day after his July 25 phone call with Ukrainian president Volodymyr Zelensky, discussing “investigations.” The staffer also told Taylor that Sondland said that Trump was more interested in investigations than anything else.

    As Breitbart News’ Kristina Wong noted, that new evidence — which is fourth-hand hearsay, plus opinion — added little new information, but was cited by Democrats and journalists as evidence that aid might have been linked to investigations Trump had asked the new Ukrainian government to pursue.

    On Thursday, Prystaiko said that there had been no link in discussions at the time with Sondland...

    The only concrete here is in the boots Schiff is wearing as he tries to swim this this thing to victory.

    Maybe the UK or whatever backwards country you hail from allows garbage like what we saw yesterday, but in modern jurisprudence, not only was the case not advanced but it was mostly inadmissible drivel used to get no where.

    Did you know that this does not come even close to meeting that narrow criteria?

    Did you know that Congress suddenly dropped their subpoena of a witness who filed suit asking the courts to decide whether he had to testify? It appears that they aren't very confident in the idea that their subpoena trumps executive privilege and don't want the courts ruling on it.

    Oh please enlighten us and tell us exactly how the case for impeachment was advanced by yesterday's hearings.

    Personally I find it telling that the impeachment wasn't even the lead story for much of the MSM today. It looks like they lost a whole lot of interest in the story that they were incessantly covering right up to yesterday. I wonder why.
