How to use classification in a sentence?

  1. Hillary Clinton:

    I take classification seriously. I relied on and had every reason to rely on the judgments of the professionals with whom I worked. And so, in retrospect, maybe some people are saying, ‘Well, … among those 300 people, they made the wrong call,’ at the time, there was no reason, in my view, to doubt the professionalism and the determination by the people who work every single day on behalf of our country.

  2. Phil Miller:

    The IARC classification of glyphosate is inconsistent with the findings of regulatory bodies in the United States and around the world, and it is not a sound basis for any regulatory action.

  3. Chris Hayes:

    Trump has every reason to believe Barr will use his new powers to aid the Presidents anti-deep state propaganda efforts, trump giving Barr unilateral authority over classification is just a huge deal in the world of Intelligence agencies.

Its basically to give Sean Hannity material for his television show. So the plan, as it appears now, is essentially a kind of purge of the ideologically suspect members of the intelligence apparatus.

  4. State Department spokesman John Kirby:

    It's certainly possible that for any number of reasons, traffic can be sent that's not marked appropriately for its classification. That is certainly possible.
