Examples of interview in a Sentence

  2. Roger Ailes:

    Listen, Megyn is so good today that there is no interview I would not want her to do.

  3. John Sheahan:

    I personally don’t think we’re ever going to be satisfied with the why, said John Sheahan, a former sergeant and SWAT team officer with the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department. We're talking about someone who has never had a lot of friends, kept to himself, and had all the finances in the world to do what he was going to do. Since the shooting, The FBI and police investigators have interviewed hundreds of witnesses, including Paddock's girlfriend Mary Lou Danley. They also looked into his gun buying history, taken apart his computer and even sent his brain to Stanford University for detailed forensic examination. But in recent weeks, authorities have provided little to no insight into the status of their investigation. The FBI’s Las Vegas field office did not respond to Fox News ’ request for an interview while the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department declined to take part in one. When we have more information to provide, we will let everybody know, LVMPD Officer Larry Hadfield told Fox News. But John Sheahan warns there may never be new information to release. Police investigators want to give the public answers. It takes the monkey off your backs.

  4. Roger Stone:

    I have testified truthfully before the House Intelligence Committee that Randy Credico was the source who confirmed Assange's June 2016 CNN interview in which the Wikileaks publisher said he had substantial information on Hillary Clinton, as I testified Randy Credico told me this material would be released in October. I now realize that Credico's source was a Wikileaks lawyer and not Assange himself. At no time did Randy Credico tell me what the source, content or scope of the WikiLeaks disclosures would be. I would note that Randy Credico has avoided testifying on these matters under oath. If Randy Credico is compelled to testify I would urge Randy Credico to simply tell the truth.

  5. Mike Baker:

    While I don't think Central Intelligence Agency likely, if the cartel were to somehow target those involved in setting up and conducting the interview, Del Castillo is certainly more at risk than Penn, given that she spends more time in Mexico than Penn, has family there, business associates there, but, as with Penn, I doubt the cartel would blame Castillo given that it was reportedly Guzman who reached out to her to start the ball rolling on looking to produce Del Castillo life story.
