CNN Legal Analyst: You Know, Schiff's Witness Testimony Is Actually Problematic

Did yesterday's six hour long impeachment hearings change anything? That's the question still up in the air 24 hours later. But as we wait for new polling to gauge the opinion of Americans who watched, the value of testimony given by Ambassador William Taylor and Deputy Assistant Secretary of State for European and Eurasian Affairs George Kent, continues to come under scrutiny.

During questioning from lawmakers, both Taylor and Kent admitted neither one of them had spoken to President Trump about Ukraine. They had only heard things second or third hand from other people and weren't "familiar with his thinking." 

According to CNN legal analyst Jeffery Toobin, a staunch critic of the Trump administration, this poses a problem for Democrats banking on testimony to justify impeachment.
