Wednesday's public impeachment hearing showed that Democrats have "really no case" against President Donald Trump, and U.S. diplomat William Taylor's testimony about overhearing a conversation involving the president would not have been allowed in a "real court," presidential counselor Kellyanne Conway said Thursday.
"If this was a real court of law and not Adam Schiff's kangaroo court, objections would have been flying from any reasonable attorney to saying hey, we just discovered that a staffer of mine overheard a conversation, somebody else was having with the president in a restaurant," Conway told Fox News' "Fox and Friends."
She added that it's because of incidents like Taylor's testimony that Trump and others are calling for being able to confront the whistleblower whose report led to the hearings.
"If you were in a civil suit or criminal suit, you would be able to confront your accuser and challenge evidence and present witnesses and challenge witnesses," said Conway. "Here is what we learned. Let's review. This will take less than a minute. Ukraine got its aid. Ukraine got $400 million of lethal aid from President Trump's administration. Ukraine did not get that kind of aid from President [Barack] Obama's administration, even though Russia invaded Crimea in 2014 on Obama's watch."
Conway also panned former Massachusetts Gov. Deval Patrick's announcement that he is entering the race for the Democratic nomination, saying it shows how "chaotic and unsettled" the campaign is.
"A dozen or so drop out, 17 or 18 remain," said Conway. "The problem is not enough people running for president, the problem is the other candidates are not getting a word in edgewise. They're completely crowded out by the impeachment inquiry."
Patrick is a close friend of Obama's, which Conway called a "slap" toward former Vice President Joe Biden, and shows Biden is being seen as "Hunter Biden's father" rather than Obama's former vice president.
