The bootstrapping rule in the Rules of Evidence treated the admissibility of conspiracy statements in U.S. federal courts as hearsay. The rule was that, in a criminal conspiracy proceeding, the court could not hear the testimony itself when deciding whether to allow jurors to consider an explanation of the conspiracy and that the allegation had to be supported by independent evidence. If the independent evidence convinced the court that a conspiracy likely existed, only then could such testimony be presented at trial and heard by the jury. Allowing such conspiracy statements to prove the existence of a conspiracy was considered similar to bootstrapping.
