(American idioms) Should I read this phrase in bold as be evidence that something is or will be said or be evidence that something is said or will be said ? As far as I understand, this phrase has to do with the second example. That means: The crumbs on the shirt are evidence of what I'm talking about (I'm talking about stealing the cookie jar). If so, I think it should be: be evidence that something was done or be evidence of what is said or will be said. But I cannot get at the meaning of the phrase "be evidence that (something) is or will be said" in this context. Thank you.
