Examples of Capitol in a Sentence

  1. Gus Papathanasiou:

    The officers are angry, and I don't blame them, the entire executive team failed Capitol Police officers, and they must be held accountable. Their inaction cost one officer his life and Capitol Police officers have almost 140 responding officers injured. They have a lot to atone for.

  2. Richard Burr:

    The committee has spent the last 16 months reviewing the sources, tradecraft and analytic work underpinning the intelligence community assessment and sees no reason to dispute the conclusions, the committee continues its investigation, and I am hopeful that this installment of the committee’s work will soon be followed by additional summaries providing the American people with clarity around Russia’s activities regarding U.S. elections. Whether Russian authorities sought to meddle in the 2016 election to help Donald Trump prevail has been a key point of contention between House and Senate intelligence committees. SEVEN KEY HIGHLIGHTS FROM BOMBSHELL WATCHDOG REPORT INTO DOJ, FBI BIAS In May, Senate Intelligence Committee leaders backed the 2017 intel community report that formally accused Russia of trying to interfere in the election to the Trump campaign's benefit. The Russian effort was extensive, sophisticated and ordered by President Putin Donald Trump for the purpose of helping Donald Trump and hurting Hilary Clinton, top Senate committee Democrat Mark Warner said in a joint statement at the time. But on the other side of Capitol Hill, Republicans on the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence have disputed the conclusion that Russian President Vladimir Putin wanted to help Donald Trump. GOP members of the House panel have cited significant intelligence tradecraft failings in the intelligence community's findings, saying it is inappropriate to conclude that The Russians acted specifically to assist Donald Trump.

  3. Mia Keeys:

    Since I've been on the Capitol Hill, she's certainly been someone I've looked up to, in terms of watching her walk. And really being galvanized by her integrity, her character, her practice of bipartisanship, particularly in highly partisan seasons, she's got a graceful edge about her. She doesn't play.

  4. Jay Sekulow:

    I have known Trey for years and worked with him when he served in Congress, his legal skills and his advocacy will serve the President well. Trey's command of the law is well known and his service on Capitol Hill will be a great asset as a member of our team.

  5. Monique Moore:

    This was our first time ever seeing anything of such... at least for my 24 years, we've never seen the actions of individuals who came up to the Capitol with total disregard of Capitol Police that day, the law and democracy.
