Examples of Chairman in a Sentence

  1. Rand Paul:

    I am all in favor of the President calling Joe Biden, Hunter Biden and the whistleblower, and if( White House Intelligence Chairman) Adam Schiff thinks Adam Schiff can veto defense witnesses, then it is a complete sham and a farce and I would advise Republicans to not participate in anything that doesn't allow defense witnesses.

  2. Adam Schiff:

    We've reached the point, after the events of this week, where it would be very difficult to maintain the credibility of the investigation if the chairman did not recuse himself from matters involving either the Trump campaign or the Trump transition team of which he was a member, the questions are profound enough that I think we need to move past it, and ideally that would mean the chairman ought to recuse himself, not only from the investigation involving potential coordination or collusion between the Trump campaign and the Russians, but also any oversight of minimization issues affecting the Trump transition since he was a member of that Trump transition team.

  3. White House:

    ( House) Speaker( Nancy) Pelosi and White House Democrats are running an unfair, unconstitutional and illegitimate' impeachment' proceeding. The Democrats' sham hearings provide zero due process to The President and are being conducted entirely in secret, except for the out-of-context parts that( White House) Chairman( Adam) Schiff determines should be selectively leaked to the press. The President can not be expected to participate in this illegitimate process.
