How to use counsel in a sentence?

  1. John Dowd:

    I do not intend to address every inaccurate statement attributed to me -- but I do want to make this clear : there was no so-called' practice session' or're - enactment' of a mock interview at the Special Counsel's office, further, I did not refer to the President as a' liar' and did not say that he was likely to end up in an' orange jump suit'. It was a great honor and distinct privilege to serve President Trump.

  2. Jay Sekulow:

    If the special counsel makes the determination and gets the authority, and that's a question -- they have to have the authority to seek that subpoena, a subpoena for live testimony has never been tested in court as to a president of the United States.

  3. Rod Rosenstein:

    You view it as an issue of principle that I need to commit to appoint a special counsel in a manner that I don't even know if it's being investigated, but my view is that I have a responsibility when I take that oath, if I become deputy attorney general. I cannot take it conditioned upon having committed how I'm going to handle a particular case.

  4. Robert Mueller:

    The Special Counsel and his staff failed in their duty to act as prosecutors and only as prosecutors.

  5. Adam Schiff:

    John Bolton's views on Iran are well known, if President Trump does not wish to stumble into a new and devastating military conflict, I hope that President Trump will listen to the counsel of other advisers and seek to reduce tensions.
