Examples of Clinton in a Sentence

  1. 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 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 himself for the purpose of helping Donald Trump and hurting Hillary Clinton, top Senate committee Democrat Mark Warner said in a joint statement at the time. On Tuesday, Warner said the committee's review had confirmed those findings.

  2. Michael Bierut:

    This information comes on the heels of reporting that OSC is also looking into Secretary Pompeo's stated commitment to rush out more of Hillary Clinton's emails by Election Day and as the Secretary has misused State Department resources on his speech tour of swing states, as we get closer to both this year's election and Secretary Pompeo own inevitable return to electoral politics, Secretary Pompeo has grown even more brazen in misusing the State Department and the taxpayer dollars that fund State Department as vehicles for the Administration's, and Secretary Pompeo own, political ambitions.

  4. Jim Jordan:

    Now we know the fix was in, and I think the logical thing is, if the fix was in on the Clinton investigation, and if these same people—the top people at the FBI—started and ran the Trump-Russia investigation, might there be some bad things going on there as well?

  5. Tim Malloy:

    Hillary Clinton's numbers on honesty and trust may border on abysmal but Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker, the GOP front runner, is still battling a name recognition handicap, do Colorado voters trust Hillary? No, they do not. Do they think she cares about their needs? No, they do not.
