As Twitchy reported, one thing we learned from Wednesday‚Äôs impeachment hearings is that ‚Äúhearsay can be much better evidence‚ÄĚ than direct evidence; those were the wise words of Democratic Rep. Mike Quigley. And there was a lot of hearsay going around, as Republican Rep. Jim Jordan so well put it.
Here‚Äôs radio host Dan O‚ÄôDonnell:
In what court of law in this country would the statement ‚ÄúAfter I testified, my aide told me he overheard Trump through a cell phone tell another guy something about the investigation‚ÄĚ be admissible as evidence?

It doesn‚Äôt sound like Quigley convinced a lot of people with his defense of hearsay evidence, and on CNN Wednesday afternoon, legal analyst Jeffrey Toobin even admitted the Democrats have a problem:

Democrats have already voted down the GOP‚Äôs request to subpoena the whistleblower, and not even he was on the phone call that set all this off.
Donald Trump Jr. was pretty amused to see Toobin admit the game of telephone the Democrats are playing is going to be a problem.
When even CNN‚Äôs Toobin is calling BS‚Ä¶ ??? https://t.co/2WzlFpazGA

Yeah it is a problem. It means neither one of them are actually witnesses.

OMG! Did the Earth just stop spinning too? Never thought I'd hear this from CNN. Must be a sign of the upcoming apocalypse.

It‚Äôs all a waste of time.

Next witness please, Mr. Biggs? "Yes, sir". What do you know? "The President did a quid pro quo with Ukraine." What proof do you have? "I heard it from a guy at work who heard it on MSNBC."

How can anybody see the hearings and come out with " yeah we need to impeach him"? Makes no sense and they already gave us their star witness ?

In case anyone is wondering:
The needle didn‚Äôt move either direction as a result of today‚Äôs hearing.
No surprise, and I‚Äôd say that favors the GOP.

Agreed. No one changed any minds Wednesday, and there weren‚Äôt any bombshells the media can use to change the public‚Äôs mind either.
Wow #CNN actually covered this??

The biggest problem is that these "witnesses" claimed to have psychic powers to be able to mindread the people who were on the call, without providing any evidence of their psychic prowess. Schiff should've asked them to guess what number he was thinking.

But, but, but, the evidence is ‚Äúoverwhelming‚ÄĚ. ?

BAHAHA! If you needed more proof the impeachment hearing went badly for Dems, watch this Rep defend ‚Äėhearsay‚Äô https://t.co/vvmASyZbcu [Note: This post requires a Twitchy VIP or VIP Gold membership to read]
