Examples of beyond in a Sentence

  1. Nick Merrill:

    This is someone who has spent nearly two decades in public service, and is widely known for her integrity and tireless work ethic, after the birth of her son, she took maternity leave. The IG had questions about the details of her leave, Huma answered. Anything beyond that injected into the public sphere is unfounded and from partisans in Congress with a clear agenda. These emails serve to reinforce that these allegations are baseless. It's not surprising, but it is disappointing.
