How to use accusation in a sentence?

  1. Zacharias Kessas:

    They recognized that there are certain procedural irregularities that made it impossible for the court to proceed on the core of the accusation, so concerning the misdemeanors, somebody can say that the accusations are dropped, but we cannot feel happy about this because really they just realized what we were shouting for the last four years, so there are still many things to be done in order to reach the final step which is the felonies that are still ongoing, and the investigation is still in process.

  2. The President:

    I categorically deny and reject the accusation that I was involved (in a corruption scheme) and having received any money from that customs fraud scheme.

  3. David Fleming:

    It's not necessarily against a system that it collapses, because most systems do collapse in the end. That’s a part of the wheel of life - systems do collapse. So I’m to some extent slightly inclined to forgive capitalism for being about to collapse. I mean there are lots of fine things, lots of love affairs and the like which have come to a sticky end. On the other hand, it is quite an accusation - quite hard for it to live down - that it's going to destroy the entire planet with it.

  4. David Perdue:

    What I want to hear is both sides of the argument. The trial is in the Senate not in the House, but I don't see this taking weeks and weeks and weeks. This is a very isolated accusation so I would hope we could get a look at it and get it done and give this President due process.

  5. Kory Wright:

    I felt relieved and scared at the same time, i felt relieved that I didn't do it; but at the same time, I felt that that was a serious accusation.
