Examples of statement in a Sentence

  1. Assistant District Attorney Hilary LaBorde:

    Any lawyer can issue a statement, but taking a statement and proving the truth of its contents beyond a reasonable doubt to a jury, when a complaining witness is subject to cross examination, is a different task entirely, given the claims made publicly, I understand why people are upset. However, all of the facts must be considered and there are many facts that the public does not have. In approving this agreement, Judge Ralph Strother had access to all the statements that have ever been made by all people involved and agreed that the plea agreement offered was appropriate in this case.

  2. Ryan McCormick:

    Any kind of statement or action taken by networks when a scandal arises may unnecessarily fan the flames of public interest in the scandal, silence may be an effective strategy at times however, silence can also be detrimental ….

  3. Abby Schreiber:

    I don’t think it’s necessarily unwise for a business to make a political statement, particularly privately-owned businesses in the fashion sector, said Abby Schreiber, managing editor at Paper Magazine. Fashion has always been about expression, provocation and, not infrequently, politics and, to that end, these designers ’ refusal to dress Melania Trump is not, in and of itself, unusual for this industry. fashion designers have long attempted to tell a story about their brand and vision and to articulate a feeling, emotion or sense of who their customer or ‘ muse ’ is, Schreiber said. And for those designers who are troubled by the hateful, bigoted rhetoric that surrounded Trump’s campaign, it may make sense for them to want to distance their brand and their vision from it. But Robert Casey, President of modeling agency Maggie, Inc., offered a simple solution.

  4. Jennifer Lopez:

    That statement alone to me is empowering. When I think of my daughter, when I think of all the little girls in the world, to be able to have that [ and ] to see that two Latinas [ are ] doing this in this country at this time, its just very empowering for us.

  5. Standard Bank analysts:

    The market essentially expected more from the (central bank) yesterday in terms of offering to stem lira weakness and even its statement was deemed to be overly dovish.
