Democrats have been scrambling following Wednesday’s lackluster public impeachment hearing, changing the focus of their impeachment narrative to “attempted” crimes after Republican lawmakers largely decimated their weak impeachment case.
Wednesday’s public impeachment hearing, which featured testimonies from acting U.S. Ambassador to Ukraine Bill Taylor and senior State Department official George Kent, was deemed a bust by many, including Democrats.
“It was a total disaster for us,” one senior House Democrat aide told Breitbart News.
“It’s hearsay,” Rep. Jeff Van Drew (D-NJ) said of Taylor’s testimony. “It’s really difficult dealing with this because it’s he said-she said.”
.@JoaquinCastrotx is trying to get the witnesses to answer whether "attempted bribery" is a crime. (They don't know.) There WAS no attempted bribery, but regardless -- the Constitution says that bribery itself, not the attempt, is impeachable. #ImpeachmentInquiry— Joel B. Pollak (@joelpollak) November 13, 2019

If no crime was committed, it doesn't matter what stopped you.
