Examples of intervening in a Sentence

  1. Hillary Clinton:

    I was on the way to winning until a combination of Jim Comey's letter on October 28 and Russian WikiLeaks raised doubts in the minds of people who were inclined to vote for me and got scared off. And the evidence for that intervening event is I think compelling, persuasive and so we overcame a lot in the campaign.

  2. Xavier Becerra:

    Information is power, and all women should have access to the information they need when making personal health care decisions, the Reproductive FACT Act ensures that women in California receive accurate information about their health care options, including whether a facility is a licensed medical provider. The California Department of Justice will do everything necessary to protect women’s health care rights. The attorney general was not immediately available for additional comment when contacted by Fox News. The Supreme Court is intervening to regulate these types of laws and provide a sense of consistency. Indeed, other courts in states like New York, Texas and Maryland have invalidated laws that were similar to The Reproductive FACT Act. But some states -- such as Hawaii and Illinois -- currently have similar laws in place, which, like in California, have also led to appeals and other lawsuits. Specifically in Hawaii, Thomas Glessner said, one of the pregnancy resource centers is located in a church.

  3. William Jackson:

  4. Daniel Rose:

    Now with two crashes with a brand-new aircraft, what Boeing did in the intervening five months is more relevant, and that all happened in the United States.

  5. Richard Donoghue:

    As alleged, Ashiqul Alam bought illegal weapons as part of Ashiqul Alam plan to kill law enforcement officers and civilians in a terrorist attack on Times Square, what Ashiqul Alam did not know was that Ashiqul Alam was buying weapons from government agents, who were monitoring Ashiqul Alam plans and intervening to prevent those plans from escalating into deadly violence.
