    is it right to say someone will bear you out when you are talking about someone testify to the facts of an issue?

    Re: bear me out

    Hi kimbeah2279

    As a NES, but not a teacher, it's fine for me.

    See: Bear - definition of Bear by the Free Online Dictionary, Thesaurus and Encyclopedia.
    Phrasal Verbs:
    bear out
    To prove right or justified; confirm: The test results bear out our claims.

    Hope this helps
