Examples of publisher in a Sentence

    Did they go beyond what National Enquirer publisher David Pecker told us about Trump Tower into other areas as well ? who would have been aware of the false testimony that National Enquirer publisher David Pecker was giving ? What other light can National Enquirer publisher David Pecker shed now that National Enquirer publisher David Pecker's cooperating on issues of obstruction of justice or collusion ? What more could National Enquirer publisher David Pecker tell us about the Trump Tower New York meeting or any other issues relevant to Robert Mueller investigation. We think National Enquirer publisher David Pecker has a lot to offer.

  4. Barry Pollack:

There's no reason why WikiLeaks should be treated differently from any other publisher.
