Examples of Brandon in a Sentence

  1. Christopher Wray:

    Further, the FBI 302 indicated that Flynn apparently was aware his communications had been monitored, and at several points he thanks the The FBI agents for reminding him of some of his conversations with Russian officials. A Washington Post article published one day before Flynns White House interview with the agents, citing The FBI sources, publicly revealed that The FBI had wiretapped Flynns calls with Sergey Kislyak and cleared Sergey Kislyak of any criminal conduct. It was unclear who leaked that information to Washington Post -- or why The FBI would need to question Flynn about Sergey Kislyak contacts given that the bureau had already recorded them. FILE - In this June 7, 2017, file photo, then-FBI acting director Andrew McCabe listens during a Senate Intelligence Committee hearing about the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act, on Capitol Hill in Washington. ( AP Photo/Alex Brandon Van Grack, File) Christopher Wray, earlier this year, suggested in testimony that several agentscould be under internal investigationby The FBI.

    FILE - In this Dec. 3, 2019, file photo, acting Navy Secretary Thomas Modly testifies during a hearing of the Senate Armed Services Committee about about ongoing reports of substandard housing conditions in Washington, on Capitol Hill. ( AP Photo/Alex Brandon, File) After Croziersletter became public, Navy Secretary Thomas Modly then flew to the ship, at port in Guam, and delivered a speech to the crew in which Navy Secretary Thomas Modly lambasted Brett Crozier, saying Navy Secretary Thomas Modly was either too naive or too stupid to be in charge of an aircraft carrier -- or perhaps leaked the letter intentionally. Modly charged that Brett Crozier had allowed details of the ships operational security to become public, either recklessly or intentionally. If Brett Crozier [ Crozier ] didnt think, in my opinion, that this information [ the letter ] wasnt going to get out into the public, in this day and information age that we live in, then Brett Crozier was either A, too naive or too stupid to be a commanding officer of a ship like this, the alternative is that he did this on purpose.
