    Top 10 rather be doing than watching this latest circus:

    10. Grabbing a live wire.
    9. Seeing the newest “Charlie’s Angels” movie.
    8. Watching paint dry.
    7. Getting my teeth cleaned.
    6. Changing a dirty diaper.
    5. Breaking my leg.
    4. Willingly watching an episode of The View.
    3. Staying home, for a quiet night.
    2. Watching season 3 of “The Crown”.
    1. Playing my new game.

    Number 5 isn’t as fun as it sounds. This is from
    someone whose done it twice because I wasn’t sure if I did it correctly the first time. Overrated.

Sondland undermined the case further today.

    To actually do anything, the House would have to pass a resolution, get subpoena power and get the principles to testify. But that's hideously risky - and I doubt they have the votes to pass it now.
    Could you provide a couple of examples or point me to an article that would support you saying 'most being inadmissible at trial'? If theres a list somewhere that would be ideal. I'm interested in the reasoning behind it.

    Which was the general idea. Only 1, 2, and 3 would be things I would willingly do.

    ? Hearsay is inadmissible unless it meets exceptions - none of this did.

    But sure - it'll be tonight before I'll get to the research but I should be able to find something in text.

    "Reluctantly, only because the alternatives are worse" is a far cry from "willingly."
    Enter the Church and wash away your sins. For here there is a hospital and not a court of law. Do not be ashamed to enter the Church; be ashamed when you sin, but not when you repent. – St. John Chrysostom

    That would be great but no need to go out of way. There’s quite a lot of exceptions to the hearsay rule and if you can’t make a reasonable argument for exception then it’s also pretty fun to see if you could find a creative way to show it’s relevance to something else to get it in. It’s better than sudoku.

    In Australia we have barristers who present our cases in court so I never get to do it for work.

    Decent podcast on impeachment evidence - sorry, I'm helping a friend on a commission job and got busy researching pasteboard v chipboard.
