How to use conduct in a sentence?

  1. Michael McCaul:

    Providing these exemptions under the guise of ‘humanitarian aid,' and without any prior consultation with Congress, further undermines bipartisan support and faith in the administration’s transparency and decision-making, i remain deeply frustrated that the administration still can’t confirm what assistance programs have been restarted. This committee must be permitted to conduct oversight of foreign assistance resources and priorities.

  2. B. J. Gupta:

    Organizations rarely progress in absence of well defined codes of conduct and system to ensure that these are strictly adhered to. Same is true for society.

  3. Bob Ferguson:

    Our case continues to move forward. I still intend to hold Motel 6 accountable and uncover the whole story of their disturbing conduct.

  4. Chrystia Freeland:

  5. Joseph Dunford:

    I think it's fair to say that they still have a significant presence in Iraq and Syria. They're certainly nowhere near as strong as they were in 2017 and 2018, so they have been significantly degraded, again still maintain the ability to conduct insurgent, guerrilla-style operations and that's what they see today.
