Examples of interview in a Sentence

  2. Malcolm Spellman:

    But there’s no connective tissue between us and what’s coming out in the media, i don’t know that we can change anyone’s mind but what people have to understand is, and what we are obligated to repeat in every interview is : We’ve got black aunties. We’ve got black nephews, uncles. Black parents and black grandparents. We deal with them every single day. We deal with the struggle every single day. And people don’t have to get on board with what we’re doing based on a press release. But when they’re writing about us, and commenting about us, they should be mindful of the fact that there are no sell-outs involved in this show.

    My job as a lawyer, a defense lawyer, is not to own what Tim McVeigh did. And quite frankly, I do n’t believe that blowing up a building and killing 168 people is justified for any reason.

What the Constitution says is the government must prove what they say the defendant did. And the defense lawyer’s job is to call the government to task and ensure they can prove it.
